Last trip across the East Span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge with XE-1

This weekend marks the end of the East Span/cantilever section of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge.

In what was probably my last trip across the old span (I may need to head over for a cocktail mid-week, let’s be realistic here), I snapped a few photos of the structure and its new neighbor as a farewell to this long-standing landmark.  On Tuesday, September 3, this span will be removed from service and the new, $6.4 billion East Span will open.
