Leaks on new Bay Bridge won’t spur further costs
May 08, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

A California transportation official says leaks found on the new eastern span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge that are allowing rainwater to seep into the structure should not result in more maintenance costs.

The Department of Transportation toll bridge program manager Tony Anziano on Tuesday said the leaks were expected, not a defect. Anziano says minor surface rust has appeared inside the new bridge because of the leaks, but that the bridge contractor is required to remove it, and to repaint and seal problem areas before the project is complete.

He says the leaks will not cause more in maintenance costs over the 150-year life of the span, and do not pose safety concerns.
