OAKLAND (CBS SF) — The unlovely and disused cantilever portion of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge now has a gap-tooth appearance, as this photo from KCBS reporter Chris Filippi shows.

The bridge span, which was built in 1936 to connect Oakland and Yerba Buena Island, is being slowly dismantled, replaced in Sept. 2013 by a soaring new single-deck span.

Bay Bridge spokesman Andrew Gordon said last year that the last piece of the old structure would be removed sometime in 2016.
