OAKLAND, CA - JULY 12: A steam roller sits on the eastern span of the newly constructed San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge on July 12, 2013 in Oakland, California. Workers began paving the roadway of the newly constructed east span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge just days after bridge officials announced that the opening of the span would be delayed once again as work continues to install large steel saddles over two seismic safety devices to fix a problem with broken bolts on two shear keys. The bridge has been under construction since 2002 with an estimated price tag of $6.3 billion and will have the world's tallest Self-Anchored Suspension (SAS) tower once completed.
