Bay Bridge Reopens On Time Despite Additional Complications

http://www.flickr.com/photos/theler/2217404777/in/set-72157603791633945/The Bay Bridge reopened Tuesday morning less than two hours late after the expected opening despite a last minute rush to replace a damaged piece of the bridge that was discovered during the unrelated scheduled work.
Aside from all the normal complaints and stresses a Bay Bridge closure causes, the internet is aflutter with praise for the the job CalTrans did on the project, and their handling of the unexpected repairs.  I know I was banging my head on the steering wheel at 430am Monday while taking a “scenic” detour through Marin County after 7 hours of driving but I’m glad this segment of the project is done, and done well from what I’ve been hearing.
