California's Bay Bridge to Reopen Tuesday

Demolition work on the Bay Bridge was moving along smoothly and on schedule after the span was closed for the weekend.

CalTrans officials said the work to cut away a 350-foot section of the bridge near Yerba Buena Island was almost complete.

The next step involves a tricky maneuver to install a prefabricated replacement section the size of a football field.

The Bay Bridge closure was being blamed for traffic tie-ups around other Bay Area bridges. But so far no serious gridlock had been reported.

The bridge was scheduled to reopen Tuesday at 5 a.m.
