Cement Truck goes Swimming in the Delta

These pictures are in Middle River. As Carl, the owner of Bullfrog Marina, told people, the cement truck was getting on the Woodward Island Ferry. The cement truck driver was told to pull up a little, went the wrong way, the ferry tilted, and the truck went off the ferry.

I heard the ferry operator dove in to help the driver get out of the truck.

So, let’s see . . . this was one cement truck trying to get to Woodward Island, falls off the ferry, and spills diesel in the Delta. (Fortunately no cement – the truck was empty).

No, this was not the start of any tunnel construction project.

But you have to wonder how the State thinks they can manage a stream of construction trucks 24×7 on the Delta levee roads, small bridges, and ferries for 11 years building the tunnels ????

Yet another problem with the State’s ill thought-out plan to put a huge construction project in the middle of the Delta instead of going around it.
