Governor to skip opening of new Bay Bridge span
August 22, 2013, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

SACRAMENTO β€” Gov. Jerry Brown will not attend the opening of the new eastern span San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, which is set for the day after Labor Day.

A spokesman for the governor, Jim Evans, said Wednesday that Brown will be on an out-of-state family trip β€œand will be gone through Labor Day.”

Officials plan to close the current span, which has been deemed seismically unsafe, Aug. 28 and open the new one at 5 a.m. Sept. 3, the day after Labor Day.

The decision to open the $6.4 billion bridge comes despite construction problems that had threatened to delay the opening for months.

Federal transportation officials have approved a temporary replacement for broken earthquake-safety bolts that had been installed previously, allowing the Labor Day weekend opening.
