Bay Bridge Parts On Their Way

New, 4 comments

Exciting news to kick off the new year: the first pieces of the new Bay Bridge suspension span were set to ship out this week, just barely meeting their Dec. 31 deadline. The eight "huge wing-shaped" pieces will arrive in about four weeks, and mean 2010 will be the year we start seeing the suspension span coming together. The shipment marks a return to form after delays caused it to slip from its original goal of October 2008. Now, says a Caltrans spokesman, "The Golden Gate Bridge's days are numbered as the icon of the bay." Golden Gate Bridge says: bring it on. [SFGate]
