Workers have finished a permanent fix for problem bolts on the new eastern span of the Bay Bridge, a Caltrans spokesman said Wednesday.
The West Grand Avenue approach to the Bay Bridge in Oakland was closed Tuesday afternoon because of a gas leak, according to PG&E and Oakland police.
An injury crash blocked multiple lanes on the lower deck of the Bay Bridge for about 40 minutes Friday morning, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Caltrans seems to think the Bay Bridge isn’t spectacular enough, and the new eastern span is already getting a makeover as crews are installing thousands of lights to illuminate the span.
The decade of the depression was not without whimsy, and one of the most fantastic ideas of the 1930s was a scheme to dramatically alter the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges. The state archive holds blue prints for turning both spans into wild rides.
After two months of delay, demolition of the 1930s-era eastern span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge began on Tuesday.
State transportation officials said it will take a month longer to complete the permanent fix for the giant steel bolts that snapped on the new eastern span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge.
A pedestrian was struck and injured by a vehicle on the Bay Bridge Sunday morning, a California Highway Patrol officer said.
The trees are being placed on the bridge approach on the Oakland side, between the eastbound and westbound lanes, just west of the toll plaza.
A motorcycle collision on the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge is blocking two lanes of westbound traffic Tuesday morning, according to the California Highway Patrol.
