The eastern span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, an update: 23 November 2015

I was interested to see how much progress has been made removing the old portion of the bridge. When the new bridge section was first opened Caltrans stated that the bicycle/pedestrian pathway should be completed to Yerba Buena Island by the end of 2015. The completion date has now been pushed back to the summer of 2016. It is a work in progress. Here are pictures I took while walking on the pedestrian/bicycle pathway.
