San Francisco Bay Bridge Re-opened

The San Francisco Bay Bridge was re-opened at 9AM Monday, Nov 2, 2009

An anti-vibration system has been put in place to limit stresses and additional supports installed to prevent any rods – in case they snap off again – from falling on traffic.

Initial daily inspections will be conducted of the repair system. The eyebars will also be inspected every three months. Other future inspections may require full bridge closures.
