May 16 2004, 7:30 am - extending the span and adding another anchor
Last week revealed some of the construction details associated with the
anchors and the supporting cables. This week, I decided to ride my bicycle
(again) and see if anything happened. The early morning sun is such that
morning photos of the entire bridge from the Aquarium are impossible - so
afternoon photos will have to do.
Below are a few photos of the details of the west pylon. Note (left) the
addition of another length of steel and the third anchor. (compare with
the above photo showing only 2 anchors).
