Bay Bridge Boat Tour and Lunch
The San FranciscoOakland Bay Bridge is a pair of bridges spanning San Francisco Bay as the direct road route between San Francisco and Oakland.  It has one of the longest spans in the world.  
The  eastern span replacement of the bridge has been under construction since 2002.  It is scheduled to open in 2013 at an estimated cost of $6.3 billion.  
The replacement span is engineered to withstand the largest earthquake expected over a 1500 year period , and is expected to last at least 150 years with proper maintenance.
The Self-Anchored Suspension (SAS) tower was structurally completed as of 2011.  All 28 deck segments on the SAS Span are in place.

This tour will meet at the Bay Bridge Public Information Office for a brief introduction presentation by the CalTrans  office on the status of the project and a picnic lunch by the bridge.  The tour will then walk to the boat launch area where we will be driven out and around and under the bridge highlighting all of the structural, engineering and design challenges faced during the reconstruction of the bridge.
