September Bridge Opening (May Be) Back On

New, 1 comment

A design to temporarily repair the weakened bolts on the Bay Bridge has been approved by federal officials, leading to a possible September opening. The key is using shims "in gaps between bearings to prevent them from swiveling," while the saddle-like permanent repairs can be made. No official opening date has been set, but a bridge administrator has stated there is "no reason to delay opening the bridge to traffic." [SFGate]
