As the year draws to a close, it was time to capture a in-transition period for the Bay Bridge. The western span of the Bay Bridge, has a light show, “The Bay Lights”, that started on March 5, 2013 and runs through March, 2015. The Bay Lights was created by artist Leo Villareal. It is the worlds largest LED light sculpture consisting of 25,000 white LED lights. Programmed by the artist, it creates a never-repeating, animated display across the western span of the Bay Bridge.
On the eastern side, the new Eastern Span of the Bay Bridge was completed and opened on September 2 of this year. The primary purpose of this new bridge was to replace the old one with a bridge that is seismically more fit for the region.
