All lanes of westbound Bay Bridge open after paint spill

The California Highway Patrol has reopened all lanes of westbound Interstate Highway 80 on the Bay Bridge following a paint spill early Friday morning.

A Sig-alert has been canceled, and the CHP reported the lanes were reopened around 6:45 a.m.

The incident was first reported at 3:53 a.m, and all westbound lanes of Interstate Highway 80 were closed for about an hour as crews worked to clean up the spill.

During the closure, traffic was diverted off the highway at Fremont Street.
