OAKLAND – In this latest Caltrans News Flash, we get a behind-the-scenes look as construction crews remove huge pieces of steel from the old east span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. Motorists driving by, along with bicyclists and pedestrians on the bike path of the new Bay Bridge, continue to marvel at the progress of the demolition. Crews use small but powerful blowtorches to remove mammoth pieces of steel as their work continues on the project over the next few months.
