Time-lapse video of Bay Bridge deck replacement

Baybridgetimelapse-1 As work continues on a new eastern span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, the bridge was closed over Labor Day weekend to replace a football field-sized section of the bridge's upper deck. The new 6,500 ton, rebar-and-concrete section, built over several months, was literally rolled into place with just a three inch gap on either side. The Metropolitan Transportation Commission created an amazing time-lapse video of the operation.
