Failed Bay Bridge rod was stripped, not broken, Caltrans says


The comments below the story and the public reaction to this serious
problem is very important ( see the comments below the story).    Again I
have tried my best to clarify engineering issues and invite you again if
you feel you can contribute to making this bridge safe, please register and
comment ( you can remain fully anonymous and registration is very easy.
Please remember that people are using this bridge as you read this and the
Hayward fault nearby is accumulating strain and can fracture any time.

Best regards.
