San Francisco Bay Bridge Cut-Over this weekend

OK, it's only an opportunity to show a few photos I took of the temporary section a while back, but they are closing the Bay Bridge to reroute traffic onto a new temporary section so that the rest of the construction of the new East Span can proceed.

The temporary section is supported by some of the slenderest concrete bridge columns I've seen

No, not the steel pipe columns, but the concrete ones. They are still quite slender but are packed with some beefy rebar cages. You could walk through the center of this one:


The canteliever section shown on the right in the photo below will be lifted out and traffic will run to the South on the temporary section.


This makes room for the new cable-stayed section (sorry no pictures until they build it) to connect between the convential concrete span on the East (shown below) and Treasure Island.


It is certain to be an exciting weekend for everyone involved. Operators will definitely be standing by.
