Meanwhile, On the Bay Bridge

Temporary bridges being built on either side of the Bay Bridge are just that, temporary, so don't get confused, urges an exceedingly confusing story about the new Bay Bridge suspension span. One will handle traffic temporarily (for three long years), and the other will be used only to assemble pieces of the new Bay Bridge deck. Then, once everything's finally done, say in 2013 (crossing fingers), the temporary bridges will go. "By fall, folks should see trestles coming across the towers," [Spokesman for the builders, Bart] Ney said. "It will look like a bridge, and it will be a bridge, but we don't want people to be confused." Because it's not a bridge. [SF Gate]
