A New Dawn - San Francisco, Oakland Bay Bridge by Darvin Atkeson, on Flickr

Glorious dawn breaks as construction cranes stand high atop the still under construction San Francisco, Oakland Bay Bridge. The span in the background is the older cantilever section of the Bay Bridge that collapsed during the 1989 San Francisco (Loma Prieta) Earthquake. The new bridge is nearing completion but it will be well in to 2013 before traffic begins to flow across the new span.

The new bridge is a marvel of design with a single tower with cables supporting two separate roadways, replacing the double deck design of the old bridge. As the eastern span approaches the island, the lanes will merge back in to a double deck design and pass through the tunnel atop Yerba Buena island seen at the far right.

While it is a remarkable design that should last well in to the future, it has not been without considerable controversy which continues to this day. When finished, the total cost for the bridge will approach 7 Billion dollars, possibly more, with much of the bridge constructed in China by a company owned by the Chinese government, then shipped to the US and assembled in California. The technology gained by China on this project is planned to be used in other bridges and subways systems planned for New York and other places around the world. All this was done to save about 400 Million dollars, much of which was never realized after several problems arose during construction.

Ponte 25 de Abril (Lissabon). Not the best, but quite impressive.
