AB&I Team Member Spots AB&I Pipe at Alcatraz!
January 8, 2015
AB&I Team Member Alfredo Costa and his wife Herminia paid a visit to Alcatraz over the holidays and he was thrilled when he spotted AB&I pipe there!
Alcatraz Island is located in the San Francisco Bay about 1.5 miles offshore from San Francisco, California. Through the years it has been home to a military garrison, a military prison, Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary and even the first operational lighthouse on the West Coast of the United States.
It’s interesting to note that after a half century of salt water saturation severely eroded the buildings, Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy ordered the penitentiary closed, but the AB&I pipes still remain intact today. Built tough, built to last!
