Newly proposed plans for the eastern span of the Bay Bridge call for some of the now unused piers to be kept in place and turned into a park near the Port of Oakland. The piers were previously set to be torn down, but the park would both save money for the over-budget demolition project and create a new public 170-acre space. The existing permit for the bridge project issued by the Bay Conservation and Development Commission requires all piers to be removed, so any changes would need to be approved. High Line comparisons, however, are inevitable. [SFGate]
