OAKLAND (KCBS) — Let the countdown begin to the opening of the new eastern span of the Bay Bridge.
It’s set to open the Tuesday after Labor Day 2013.
Gov. Jerry Brown was atop the new deck, along with KCBS’ Stan Bunger and KPIX 5’s Ken Bastida Sunday night, to kick off the final months before the span opens.
“I’m sure glad we’re finally here, it’s been a long time to get this darn thing done,” Brown declared.
Brown, during his tenure as Mayor of Oakland, is considered instrumental in pressing for the now-signature suspension tower design.
