Dignitaries from San Francisco and the State of California attended the official re-naming ceremony of the Bay Bridge’s Western Span in honor of former San Francisco Mayor Willie L. Brown Jr.
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.
The final portion of funding for “The Bay Lights” art installation on the Bay Bridge has come in, along with news of a fix to some of the display’s broken lights, project officials said Friday.
Fundraising has began for a public art installation that would turn the suspension cables on the Western Span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge into a sculpture of light.
A man who had been standing on the ledge of the Bay Bridge for about two hours Saturday afternoon was taken into custody by the California Highway Patrol.
