Caltrans Implodes Another Bay Bridge Eastern Span Pier

KGO News reports, “Caltrans continued with the removal of the original east span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge on Saturday [October 15] by imploding Pier E5 of the Old Bay Bridge. Pier E5 was imploded with 8,000 pounds of explosives and done in less than three seconds. Caltrans says this method reduces the environmental impact and costs to taxpayers.” (The report provides video.)
