Senate Committee Looks Into Bay Bridge Safety

Posted on

The Bay Bridge continues to be in the spotlight on the heels of a report that called into question procedures enacted by Caltrans during construction of the bridge, with some worrying that the structure could suffer from safety deficiencies.  The Senate Transportation and Housing Committee recently held a hearing on the matter, and two engineers that were interviewed at that hearing tentatively expressed their opinion that the bridge was safe, although they did have concerns.  One pointed out that he hadn’t been involved in six years while another explained that the bridge may require additional work in the future to ensure safety for years to come.  Those two engineers were allegedly taken off of the project after pointing out potential safety problems about the welds.
