And You Thought The S-Curve Was Scary?
You certainly would get a good view of the Bay while driving along those extensions. As you were PLUMMETING TO A WATERY DEMISE.
I don’t even want to think about how any extensions to the cantilever section would have held up in 1989.
(On the other hand I’d really like that convertible in the middle picture. Some great detail on the cars if you click to zoom in.)
Eric also has scans of plans for a Southern Crossing Bay Bridge, between Islais Creek and Alameda in Oakland.
(Hey BART, you listening? That sure would be a nice extension from a 30th St-Mission station.)
