|The Commodore Schuyler F. Heim Bridge is a vertical-lift bridge in the Port of Los Angeles.
The bridge, dedicated on January 10, 1948, allows State Route 47 (the Terminal Island Freeway) to cross over the Cerritos Channel. It is the largest vertical lift bridge on the West Coast. The deck of the bridge is an open grid to decrease weight and ease lifting of the bridge to allow ship traffic to pass underneath.
