Bay Bridge reopens after long closure
November 2, 2009 9:33 AM
The San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge reopened Monday morning after almost a week of being closed.
Caltrans Spokesman Bart Ney said in a press conference Monday morning that the bridge repairs passed the final testing, which included vibration and truck tests.
"All tests went fine," Ney said. "We passed all tests with flying colors."
The bridge was closed on Oct. 27 evening after a cable fell apart on the upper deck of the bridge. The parts that fell were part of the emergency repair that delayed the bridge from opening during the Labor Day weekend.
