San Francisco's Bay Bridge will be capable of withstanding a major earthquake when a replacement span is completed, officials said. A computer-generated simulation released by state officials shows the bridge moving with an earthquake's vibrations instead of resisting them. It is designed to withstand the largest plausible earthquake in a 1,500-year period. "It will be one of the safest places to be in an earthquake," a Caltrans spokesman said.
