Last week I was on Treasure Island for the monthly antiques fair. The weather was glorious and the killer views could not be beat. The new eastern span of the bridge is progressing, with the gigantic support tower now in place. The Oakland hills are in the background. Note the four catwalks at a steep 45∘angle to the tower. Bridge workers must have nerves of steel to climb these structures. The new span connects to Yerba Buena Island where it joins the suspension section that goes to San Francisco. The new section will also be a suspension bridge and is scheduled to open next year. Check out the bridge website for all kinds of fascinating information. Since a bike lane is included in the design, I hope we'll be able to walk on the new bridge. This photo is doing double duty this week and is linked to Weekend Reflections and Sunday Bridges.
