Of course, the eastern span, the one they’re still working on decades after the Big One of 1989, will have an ornamental tower. Oh well.

Anyway, this is a nice shot.

    The new bridge’s tower is functional as well — it is in fact the anchor of the self anchored suspension span.

    great photo, though.

    Yeah, but the span isn’t useful tho.

    A freeway on stilts on pilings driven into the hard mud down below would have been fine.

    Ergo, the tower is indeed ornamental…
