San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge

If you live in the San Francisco-Oakland area, the news isn't without daily coverage of the Bay Bridge!  Of course that's before this morning's Apple iPhone 5S/C event so stay tuned here for the final post event update.  But I digress.  I have yet to see the new Bay Bridge or drive through it but if you want to check out the amazing feat, watch the beautiful time-lapse below compressing 42,000 hours into just 4 minutes!

Of course the biggest news is the fact that for the first time in history, pedestrians and cyclists will have access to the SFO-OAK Bay Bridge's new East Span.  Once the entire bridge is completed, it will provide a 2.2 mile stretch between Oakland and Yerba Buena Island.  For safety sake, all you cycling speed demons will be limited to 15 mph and will be heavily patrolled by the police.
