Bay Bridge Touchdown Project


CAM 17 Heavy Metals Monitoring

A plan to realign traffic lanes and build detours just west of the toll plaza will allow engineers and construction crews to complete those new eastbound lanes ahead of schedule. By implementing these detours for the next two years, the entire bridge will be able to open to the public earlier than previously scheduled. The detours will allow a construction crews to work between the existing and new bridges to complete the new eastbound lanes, which is not possible without the traffic realignment. Eastbound traffic will begin using the detour in May 2011 while westbound will start in early 2012.
