boomBay seniors don’t have to wait for the next James Bond movie to see a mighty colossal explosion. This Saturday around 1 pm CalTrans will be detonating the cement pier at the western end of the old Bay Bridge. It will take 20,000 pounds of explosives and cost $20 million. They expect it to last six seconds. Of course traffic on the new span will be briefly shut down but CalTrans plans to put the big event online, so you can view it live.
