Hey Mike, Yes, the 58 bridge caissons would be considered self-driven. I don't know if you ever saw it, but we have the RE's report from when the 58 bridge was built. There are pictures that show the caisson during construction and there is a fairly detailed explanation of how they settled the caisson to bedrock. It is very interesting. At one point they encountered uneven bedrock under the caisson which would cause it to tilt as it dropped. They blasted the bedrock and cracked the caisson almost full height. That is why one of the cells of one of the caissons was filled with concrete.

Concerning self-driving caissons, I assume Piers 2 and 3 of the 28 Carquinez Bridge would be a good example of a self-driving caisson. How about caissons at the 58 bridge - were they self driven?
