Last 2 Piers of the Old Bay Bridge Demolished

OAKLAND (CBS SF) -- Caltrans demolished the last two piers that held up the bridge's former eastern span on Saturday morning.

Caltrans workers imploded the two remaining piers a little before 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.. The piers were demolished in preparation for construction of a new public access boardwalk.

The new 600-foot boardwalk will provide views of the San Francisco Bay, according to Caltrans. It is scheduled to be open to the public by this time next year.
