Tuesday morning, the old Bay Bridge troll will be on display at the Oakland Museum of California. It will be on display through February.

The troll was created by a local artist and secretly welded to the old eastern span of the Bay Bridge in 1989 by ironworkers repairing damaged caused by the Loma Prieta earthquake.

It was removed in August when the old eastern span was permanently closed to traffic. There is a new troll on the new eastern span, but its whereabouts are still a mystery.
