 The California Coastal Commission held three days of hearings at Fort Bragg town hall last week to review several pending coastal projects. Most controversial was the Commission's approval of the Cal Trans permit application for a geotechnical survey at the historic Albion River Bridge, the last wooden trestle bridge on the California coast.  According to Cal Trans, the survey is necessary in order to determine if the aging bridge should be rehabilited or replaced.
