Rewrapping and Dehumidification of Main Cables Project

Toll Dollars at WorkA $53 million project to rewrap the main suspension cables and install a dehumidification system on both spans of the Bay Bridge (US 50/301) began in fall 2012 and is expected to last 2.5 years. The westbound span is complete and crews are now working on the eastbound span. Rewrapping the suspension cables involves removing the existing neoprene coating and wrapping the cables with a new neoprene coating. As an extra layer of protection, the dehumidification system will help reduce potential moisture within the cables by injecting dry air into the cables.
