Designing the New Bay BridgeDownload audio (MP3)
Last week, construction crews on the new eastern span of the Bay Bridge completed "the big lift," dramatically shifting the weight of the new single-tower suspension span from temporary supports to a mile-long cable. The new section, set to open next year, is now officially the world's largest self-anchored suspension span. We'll talk to some of the architects involved with the project.
