Bridge News -- March 28, 2013

Yesterday the last toll takers left their booths on the Golden Gate Bridge.  Many drivers were confused and tried to stop and pay their tolls.  I'm sad to see all those people lose good union jobs.  

On the new eastern span of the Bay Bridge, workers discovered broken bolts.  A large number of bolts appear to have been made with brittle steel and will have to be replaced or retrofitted.  This could delay the Labor Day opening.  

I took the photo of the Golden Gate Bridge on 30-December-2007.
