Port of Oakland

Two Bridges in One Day

On March 5, 2005, two ZPMC cranes aboard the Zhen Hua I vessel passed under the Golden Gate and the Bay Bridges to journey to their new home, Port of Oakland’s recently strengthened Berth 32.

Cranes Go Under Bay Bridge

On the first day of May, eastbound traffic on the Bay Bridge halted to minimize bridge deflection while giant cranes passed underneath with only 5 feet to spare.

Under the Golden Gate

Four container cranes from China made the headlines when they slipped under the Golden Gate bridge with only 11 feet to spare. The next morning, on October 25, 2000, the cranes went under the SF Bay Bridge, this time with only 25 inches to spare.
