Bay Bridge repair work under way

Caltrans contractors began cutting a cracked section of a load-bearing beam out of the Bay Bridge last weekend. The crack was discovered Labor Day weekend, but repair efforts failed. That prompted a new strategy requiring nighttime lane closures, which started Friday. “Tonight, we will complete removal of the damaged portion and will begin installing new steel,” bridge spokesman Bart Ney said Sunday.
