Winging It

Considering that the 800 or so cormorants nesting on the Bay Bridge's old eastern span would cost Caltrans millions to move, John King is suggesting that we hang on to a portion of the old span and generally embrace a policy of putting a bird on it. Not only would a freestanding set of trusses make a great historical marker of 1930s industry, but it would also serve as a readymade avian pied-à-terre and, let's hope it doesn't come to this, a reminder of how to build a bridge.
