The new Bay Bridge East Span is comprised of four major structures. From west to east they are: (1) the Yerba Buena Island Transition Structure, (2) the Self-Anchored Suspension Bridge, (3) the Skyway, and (4) the Oakland Touchdown Approach. The entire East Span is being targeted for opening on Labor Day weekend of 2013 (more information is available at http://www.baybridgeinfo.org). The entire structure is 3.5 km (2.2 miles) long.
