Bay Bridge Repairs, Labor Day Weekend

Bay area residents may have noticed signs everywhere kindly informing us that the entire Bay Bridge will be closed on labor day weekend. “What’s going on?” you might be wondering. “Didn’t they do this last year?” Well yes, yes they did do it last year, and it was such a success that they’re decided to go for a repeat. Only this time the stakes are higher; in an impressive display of engineering prowess, a football-field sized portion of the bridge will be demolished, then replaced with the help of a computer-controlled hydraulic system. All in the span (pun fully intended) of just three days.To help you understand the scope of the work, this helpful graphic has been prepared by Caltrans, the Bay Area Toll Authority, and the California Transportation Commission:Pretty cool, eh?More info on the Bay Bridge can, appropriately, be found at Baybridgeinfo.org
