Bay Bridge Western Span
A maintenance contract approved Wednesday should keep the popular Bay Lights art installation on the western span of the Bay Bridge twinkling well into the next decade.
The Western Span of the Bay Bridge is going to take on the name of one of the Bay Area’s most recognizable politicians. But it didn’t happen without controversy and a fight.
State legislators Thursday approved naming the western span of the Bay Bridge after former state Assembly Speaker and San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown, but a lawsuit filed in San Francisco Superior Court sought an injunction to block the move.
