Regional Oral History Office seeks your Bay Bridge stories
After eleven years of construction, the Bay Bridge’s majestic new eastern span is set to open to traffic this fall.
It’s hard to imagine the Bay without the Bay Bridge. But it hasn’t always been with us. That’s why the Regional Oral History Office (ROHO), part of UC-Berkeley’s Bancroft Library, is soliciting stories from people who were there when the original Bay Bridge opened – to keep these memories alive.
Sam Redman from ROHO has recorded a number of interviews with folks who recall this time. He came by recently and shared excerpts with KALW’s Steven Short.
