Phase 3 - Support Piers: Implosions of the last two remaining piers - E17 & E18 completed November 11, 2017
On Saturday, November 11, 2017 Caltrans completed the demolition schedule for the remaining 13 marine foundations of the original East Span of the Bay Bridge with the implosions of the last two remaining piers - E17 & E18. The series of implosions to demolish the 1936 concrete structures took place over six weekends. Caltrans has combined multiple piers on certain demolition dates, allowing the demolition work to be completed a year ahead of schedule, saving taxpayers nearly $10 million.
Project completion is projected by the end of 2017.
