A new report confirms the Bay Area has some of the worst traffic in the country, and drivers should expect things to get worse.
A Vacaville man who stopped to help a crash victim on eastbound Interstate Highway 80 in Dixon this morning died after he was struck by a car, a California Highway Patrol sergeant said.
A man and woman have been detained by police after fleeing the scene of a crash on Interstate 80 in Vallejo Sunday, a California Highway Patrol officer said.
Fixing problems caused when nearly three dozen steel rods broke on a new span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge will cost about $1 million, a state transportation official said.
Within the next two weeks, transportation officials are hoping to have a design fix for broken bolts on the new eastern span of the Bay Bridge ready for review. Officials said there is also plenty of money to cover the repairs.
The Solano County coroner’s office has identified a Petaluma couple as the victims who died in a crash involving a big-rig on Interstate Highway 80 on Thursday morning.
Two people were killed Thursday morning when a big-rig driver choked on food and lost consciousness, striking three vehicles on Interstate 80 in Davis.
Transportation officials said that they’re troubled by the discovery of problems with 32 large bolts on the new eastern span of the Bay Bridge, but they are confident that the problem can be fixed in time for the bridge to open on schedule over the Labor Day weekend. They also sought to reassure the public that the bridge will be safe when it opens.
With less than six months until the scheduled opening of the new eastern span of the Bay Bridge, more than two dozen giant bolts holding the $6.4 billion bridge together have reportedly snapped.
While the new eastern span of the Bay Bridge will open to traffic in September, the work needed to take down the old roadway is expected to take years. Environmental restrictions mean the structure will have to be carefully taken apart in sections.
