Drivers on the new Alfred Zampa Memorial Bridge met long delays Tuesday morning. Cars were forced into one lane because construction vehicles blocked the two other lanes.
Workers were racing to take down road barriers and finish painting traffic lines. They closed the original bridge at 6:30 a.m. The new bridge honors an ironworker who survived a fall off of the Golden Gate Bridge in 1936. It is the first suspension bridge to be built in the United States in 30 years.
