One Last Time on the Eastern Span
Feeling sentimental today, I got a zipcar just to drive to Oakland this afternoon and make one last drive back to the City across the Eastern Span of the Bay Bridge. The soon to be old bridge closers forever on Wednesday at 8 pm so they can finish up and open the new bridge over the weekend.
When I was a kid, my first view of San Francisco was from the Bay Bridge. The Eastern Span is not pretty, but it’s special. Back in 2011 I did two pieces about the Bay Bridge for the 2011 Project, including this one shown above.
