span in an abundance of caution. we do this as a caution just to make sure that nobody hears the site implosion and causes a collision of some kind. with everything in place a veil of undersea air bubbles enveloped the two piers just seconds beforethe bay erupted in what appears to have been a successful operation. we'll continue to monitor the area over the next couple of hours later in the day we'll go in and do a sonar read of the actual demolition work but from the surface everything looked and appeared to go successfully today. the remaining underwater piers will go through this same process on weekends through the end of the year. we plan to be done by the end of the calendar year and some weekends we will be imploding one two or three of the piers going forward and i think so far the contractor has represented that he will be able to pull that off successfully. at the eastern span of the bay bridge jeff pierce kron four news.
