At least one badly needed bridge replacement is now a done deal, as Bay Area commuters welcome the new span of the Oakland Bay Bridge, which opened early last week. Despite the difficulties from more than 11 years of construction and even longer time of discussion, most are quite joyous and even awe-struck of the accomplishment. One particular motorcyclist expressed his elation at the new bridge during a helmet-cam recording of his ride over the span in the eastern direction, where the difference between the old and new span is most marked. As for the famed Bay Bridge Troll mentioned last week, it has been removed from the old span and moved to a quiet place near the toll plaza for visitors to gaze at. In turn, Caltrans announced that the new Bay Bridge will have its own troll.
