Falling Debris on Bay Bridge Spotlights Need for Action

Thursday, October 29, 2009

Falling debris forced closure in the bridge which spans the San Francisco Bay and carries an average of 280,000 vehicles daily. The pieces that fell this week raise a troubling issue as repairs had just been made in September to the same section of the 73-year-old bridge. In the wake of the Minnesota Bridge collapse experts say "If we don't start making substantial progress in five years, we will have more collapses."
