An ironworker walks by the main cable of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge Self-Anchored Suspension Span (SAS) after a hydraulic compaction device passes over it on May 2, in Oakland, Calif. The main cable installation of the Self-Anchored Suspension Span is nearly complete as crews finish up compacting nearly one mile of cable that is comprised of 137 individual strands. The bridge has been under construction since 2002 with an estimated price tag of $6.3 billion and will have the world's tallest Self-Anchored Suspension tower once completed.
