Bay Bridge Walking Tour: Take a Walk on the East Side

Take a walk on the Bay Bridge Trail with the WTS Student and Younger Members Group and learn about how the East Span Project came to fruition. Mike Davis, Ivy Edmonds-Hess, and Brady Nadell will discuss the planning, environmental analysis, and design of the East Span throughout the project lifecycle, including: 

  • The decision leading to replacement, and not retrofit, of the East Span;

  • How alternatives were developed;

  • How different interests (rail/bikes on bridge) participated in the project development process;

  • Innovative methods to protect habitat and wildlife;

  • Design and construction challenges of the self-anchored suspension span; and

  • The dismantling approach. 

Mike Davis is a Senior Vice President at ICF International and is an environmental strategist for transportation clients. Mike was the consultant team environmental manager for the East Span Project responsible for preparing the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and regulatory permit applications.  

Ivy Edmonds-Hess is a Supervising Environmental Scientist and Senior Project Manager at Parsons Brinckerhoff. She has been working on the East Span Project for over 16 years, first as a staff planner on the EIS and then as project manager of the Biological Mitigation and Monitoring Program during construction.
