Bay Bridge Continues to be Plagued by Potential Problems
Posted May 16th, 2014 @ 7:38am

Additional engineering problems continue to plague the new eastern span of the Bay Bridge.  

According to a report in the "San Francisco Chronicle," Caltrans officials say they know about the shifting of several hundred steel rods that could be a threat to the stability of the bridge.  

The report says the rods are now closer to some sharp-edged plates and that could mean damage to the bridge's main cable in the event of a major earthquake.  

The report says the fix could add up to millions more dollars for a bridge that already has a $6.4 billion price tag.
