Phase 3 - Support Piers: Implosions of the last two remaining piers - E19 & E20 September 8, 2018
On September 8, Caltrans will implode two marine foundations of the original San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge east span. This final implosion event will culminate Caltrans’ removal of the marine foundations of the old Bay Bridge and will mark the end of the demolition of the original east span.
The removal of two additional piers is the next step toward repurposing four remaining marine foundations for public access improvements. One pier along Yerba Buena Island will be converted into an observation platform and 140-foot long boardwalk. Three others on the Oakland shoreline will serve as the foundation for a 600-foot long boardwalk.
