Campaign Seeks to Save the Steel from the Old San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge East Span for Re-Use

A campaign has been launched to urge agencies managing the demolition of the old eastern span of the San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge to save the bridge’s steel for re-use. The campaigners suggest that the steel be used for art installations and civic works like bus shelters, light poles, and so on. If you’d like to help, here’s how to get involved.

The historic Bridge should be celebrated rather than discarded, and its vintage steel preserved for the creation of public art and civic installations, such as bus shelters, park benches, municipal lighting and hundreds of other applications for all to enjoy.
