Witness more than 42,000 hours of construction in just 4 minutes with this official time-lapse movie of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. Our live streaming video and high definition time-lapse construction cameras have been on site since 2008 to document progress, archiving nearly 2 million images for the $6.4 billion bridge.
I have to admit that I am still wary of the long-term prospects for this bridge, given all of the controversy about the bolts used in the structure. We have to assume that CalTrans has done enough testing to validate the integrity of this new bridge, since they decided to go ahead and open it to the public. I hope that my skepticism is not warranted.
