“It was fabulous… they did a tremendous job here. They got it done a month ahead of schedule. When was the last time you heard of that?”
Before dawn on April 29, 2007 the driver of a gasoline truck in Oakland, California, lost control of his rig and flipped it on an Interstate connector ramp. The tanker was carrying 8,600 gallons of fuel, and it exploded into a white-hot blaze that licked the steel underside of a roadway above it. A 168-foot section of that structure buckled and collapsed. Due to Caltrans’ extensive and intense management of the rebuilding effort, the roadway re-opened on May 25, just 26 days later.
