Tth construction engineering and construction of this bridge was done by Obayashi Corporation (Burlingame, CA) in joint venture with PSM Construction USA (Brisbane, CA), under a contract with FHWA. Obayashi, formed in Osaka, Japan in 1892, has been building large, complex civil infrastructure projects in the U.S. since 1979.
When a new and significant bridge is opened it is really cool to be able to fly over it in a helicopter for photographs. This was a fun shoot.
