The 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake made clear the need to improve the safety of the highway system overpasses and bridges. In the 10 years following that tragic event, Caltrans retrofitted or replaced more than 2,000 bridges and performed work on all 7 state-owned toll bridges in the Bay Area. Over the course of several years, the TBPOC has endeavored to address and resolve an array of critical issues concerning the State’s toll bridge projects and, in particular, several relating to the construction of the new East Span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. With public safety clearly established as priority one, public access to job-level information is also very important. This web page is dedicated to sharing information with the public to help them understand the magnitude of information and complex issues surrounding this iconic project.
