Why wasn't the Oakland part of the San Francisco-Bay Bridge also built as a suspension bridge instead of a truss bridge?

The structure is actually 3 bridges: two suspension bridges and one cantilever bridge (a bridge formed by two projecting beams joined in the center and supported on piers and anchored by counterbalancing members).
Construction on the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge was difficult because of the width of the bay and depth of the water. Earthquake faults and the difficulty of finding a solid anchorage on the muddy bottom further complicated the construction.
This quiz is about part one of the TV show 'The 4400', where 4400 people come back to Earth after being abducted by an unknown intelligent life form. It is a brilliant show, and I hope you enjoy this quiz about it!
