Bay Bridge Reopens
San Francisco, CA – Caltrans has announced the reopening of the Oakland-San Francisco Bay Bridge.
At 9:01 this morning five CHP units escorted the first wave of vehicles over the Bridge which was closed this past Tuesday evening when several tons of steel framework plunged to the upper deck of the east span.
Overnight crews were able to “get the geometry” in place with respect to key part on the bridge and conduct stress tests on the cracked beams.
The Bay Bridge services approximately 280,000 vehicles a day.
