Bay Bridge reopens ahead of plan

Vehicles began streaming across the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge early Tuesday, a day ahead of program, after the conclusion of repairs to a crack in the structure's east span.

Commuters began driving over the bridge approximately 6:40 a.m. PT (9:40 a.m. ET), shortly after Randy Iwasaki, director of the California Department of Transportation, announce the reopening at a news conference.

"The bridge has been inspect, and it is safer than when we closed it on Friday," Iwasaki said.

Over the weekend, crews began repairing a "significant crack" that was found on the east span of the bridge during a intended closure for another project.
