A suicidal man who evaded police after climbing onto the south tower of the Golden Gate Bridge was captured Friday morning, but not before traffic on the span was shut down two separate times as police searched for the man.
U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood and San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee were among numerous officials who attended Monday’s ground breaking for the new tower.
Construction crews began installing the final section of the suspension portion of the new eastern span of the Bay Bridge Friday morning.
It’s finally coming together – the last remaining section of the new Bay Bridge tower was slated for installation Friday. Crews warned ahead of time that the piece being installed was considered the most complicated of the entire tower project.

The Bay Area Toll Authority says it’s going to cost an extra $300 million to build the new tower on the eastern span of the Bay Bridge.
Motorists using the Bay Bridge will see a taller signature tower the next time they cross, now that a second set of tower sections have been placed atop the existing structure.
Work to install new sections of a 525-foot-tall tower on the new eastern span of the Bay Bridge has been delayed for least four days because of a maintenance issue, Caltrans officials said Wednesday.
