Height clearance for westbound span of Bay Bridge reduced for 6 months
Posted by WTOP/Mary DePompa
Attention commercial vehicle operators: the westbound span of U.S. 50/Bay Bridge will reduce height clearance to 14 feet 6 inches beginning Tuesday, April 23.
For approximately the next six months, vehicles above this height will need to plan an alternate route.
The height reduction is part of the final phase of painting, which began in the summer of 2017 when the cleaning and painting began through the truss span on the eastern portion. This latest phase and height change will allow for platform construction for contractors to contain cleaning and painting materials.
The entire project is expected to be completed by the summer of 2020.
