Caltrans implosion for the old Bay
Bridge. The piers (E7 and E8) are part of the remaining 13 marine
foundations of the original East Span of the Bay Bridge. The series of
implosions are anticipated over several weekends this fall, with a
projected completion date by the end of 2017. With approval from several
environmental agencies, Caltrans will combine multiple piers on certain
demolition dates, allowing the demolition work to be completed a year
ahead of schedule, saving taxpayers nearly $10 million.
