Summary:
After almost a decade, California is nearing the crucial end of what has become its most expensive public works project ever, the $6 billion dollar rebuilding and earthquake-proofing of the Bay Bridge. This massive overhaul involves building an entirely new approach into San Francisco, retrofitting the 4.5-mile double suspension bridge with more than 17 million pounds of structural steel and completely replacing the 2.2-mile cantilever bridge with a self-anchored suspension bridge, a skyway, and new touchdown into Oakland. The program examines current construction methods and goals as well as how the city maintains the current bridge until the new structure is complete.

Only available in the US.
