The Bay Bridge: Special Job, Special Equipment

At a cost of more than $5 billion, the bridge's new eastern span is scheduled to be complete in 2013. The span saves commuters time driving from San Francisco east to Oakland and beyond.

The plant supplying concrete for the San Francisco - Oakland Bay Bridge project sits on 1½acres at the Port of Oakland. Cemex is supplying 100,000 cubic yards of concrete for the new eastern span.

One of the three delivery barges delivers concrete to the project. They are named Micki, Margo, and Kathy, after the names of the wives of the Cemex management team.
