California’s San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge remains closed to repair the crossbar and two rods that came loose and fell to the pavement yesterday, Oct. 27.
Crews completed welding on a section of the bridge but the repair still has to be tested for safety, said a spokeswoman for the California Department of Transportation.
The bridge was closed after the rods and a 5,000-pound crossbeam fell during afternoon rush hour traffic on Tuesday. The parts that collapsed were part of a repair done over Labor Day.
From July 2014 through September 2015, Cauley reported conducting 39 Level 1 inspections on Cruz and Sons trucks, all of which were given a Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance inspection decal for a clean inspection. Cruz reportedly paid Cauley at least $4,000 for the clean inspections
