Bay Bridge reopens after nearly weeklong closure

November 2, 2009 12:00:00 AM PST
The San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge is open to traffic again following emergency repairs, ending days of frustration for Northern California commuters. California Department of Transportation spokesman Bart Ney had warned that drivers should prepare to find alternate routes for the Monday morning commute then announced the span would reopen.

Engineers have been working furiously to complete repairs to a section of the bridge where two rods and a crossbar fell into rush-hour traffic lanes Tuesday.

Ney says workers made significant progress overnight to assure the bridge's safety and were doing final inspections.
