Labor Day Bridge Opening Possibly Postponed in San Francisco

Posted: May. 30th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Due to open on labor day, transit across the new eastern span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay bridge may very well be postponed according to California's Governer, Jerry Brown. Providing an alternative route for traffic and coming with a significant price tag, the delay in service has not been well received.

California Gov. Jerry Brown said Monday he doesn’t know if the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge will open over Labor Day weekend because of safety concerns.

It’s the first time the governor acknowledged serious worries about the structural integrity of the $6.4 billion project to build a new eastern span of the bridge.

Brown spoke to reporters Monday before delivering a graduation speech for University of California, Berkeley political science students.

I drive across that bridge, too,” Brown said.

He said the administration is reviewing construction documents going back as far as the administration of former Gov. Gray Davis.
