Default Traveling to San Francisco Bay Area?

Just a quick heads-up.

The Oakland-San Francisco Bay Bridge (80) will be closed for earthquake retro-fitting starting tomorrow night thru the holiday w/e and (hopefully) will be re-opening Tuesday morning in time for the commute.

What earthquake you might ask???

The 1989 earthquake!

Yep, they are still dicking around with that thing...

Sure, the immediate repairs took almost a year, but the actual retro-fitting has still been under way all this time. Twenty years!!!

What a joke!!!

I also posted this in the West Coast forum, but figured that most THT members view this forum and besides, if you aren't from the West Coast but are traveling to the Bay Area, you might not read the other forum.

Oh yeah, just in case you were wondering, we get the privilege of paying $4 to cross that bridge.

Even more to cross the Golden Gate!

And they will be raising the toll to $5 next year!

I'm sure glad I don't live in or commute to the City!

So here's where I am at with this.

If I have chosen to live in an a city and raise my family I tend to support that city when ever I can, warts and all.

I certainly would never try to tear the city down even remotely with lies and bull-crap.

So I would ask that anyone reading this please do your own diligent research.

FWIW, they are rebuilding the Bay Bridge over time, turning it into a Suspension Bridge that can withstand FUTURE earthquakes, learning from past experiences.

The OP should be ashamed of himself. Why even chose to live there if you have that much hate for your community.

But I guess your opinions are gathered from the outlets you chose to get your information from.

One too many tonight, NIMROD???

As I have already said in numerous posts, I do not live in the City!!!

And you can do all the research you want, the FACT is that the bridge will be closed tomorrow night thru the w/e (at least). Maybe longer if they don't finish the scheduled work.

And you can take that to the bank!

OK Menzie, go crack open another one...

Gee... Let me think...

There are about NINE Bay Area counties to pic from.

Care to guess which one I live in???

FBI clue... Rhetorical question!


Yeah, I remember when I was 21 and had too much to drink. The sad part is that you are well over 21!

So if you don't live in a city that is affected by the Bay Bridge why bitch about it?

If you do live in a city that is affected by the Bay Bridge and have a problem with them making it earthquake proof, share you reasoning.

Now that your "retro" and "20 year" bull-crap has been exposed you have decided to fall back on the "hey, I don't live in a city near there", and "hey you're drunk", and "hey, I need to deflect my stupid original post and hope that someone comes in to help me quick."

Grow up. Get involved in growing and strengthening your local community instead of tearing it down on a national forum.

Dude, it's been over 25 minutes since I posted. You are still online. I just looked at your recent posts and you haven't posted anywhere else.

No one is coming to your rescue.

So what's the deal? Do you support you local community, do you have pride in your community, or do you still want to crap all over them?

Personally I'm wondering where the respect of the 63 killed in the earthquake fit into your reasoning?

And the 63++ that could be added in future earthquakes if they don't finish this work because of people like you.

Nut up.
