It appears the final piece of hardware is now installed on the new eastern span of the Bay Bridge.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that a new statue of a bearded, spindly legged troll is now in place at an unknown location. The troll, forged by a local sculpture, is meant to be a good luck charm.

It's modeled after a similar statue placed by a steelworker on the old span after the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake.

That troll was removed on Labor Day and will likely be housed in a museum or park.
