OAKLAND – Watch Caltrans’ latest News Flash video for a behind the scenes look at the historical removal of the last and final truss of the Old Bay Bridge. This work of removing the top deck of the Bridge is significantly ahead of schedule and under budget. Although this is an engineering marvel in reverse, done with great precision, many Bay area residents are feeling nostalgic about this historic landmark being removed from the Bay.
