Sunday Bridge Series: Fruitvale Bridge

Work is being done on the Fruitvale Bridge which crosses the estuary to Alameda.  For some reason the road bed is up for an undetermined amount of time.  It's quite a sight.  For other bridges around the globe, visit «Louis'» bridge meme.  If you have a bridge photo of your own, come join us.

  1. Great shot. You don't usually see it up like that! I wonder if this is causing traffic headaches! (I'm trying this meme for the first time).

  9. When you've taken all the photos of the underside, let them know they can now lower the bridge!

  10. I guess there must be a few frustrated motorists in the area waiting for the bridge to be lowered. Makes for an interesting photo though!

  11. This looks like more of an artistic display than a construction site.

  14. I hope the indefinite time won't be long, I am sure it will cause a traffic jam.

    I have never seen it like this. Nice capture!
