Commuters face 2nd morning without Bay Bridge

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Commuters are facing a second day without the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, but again appear to be getting around the region without any major snarls.

Traffic on alternate routes into San Francisco was moving early Friday morning. California Highway Patrol Officer Daniel Hill told San Francisco-based KRON-TV that the CHP expected lighter traffic given it is the Friday before the Labor Day weekend.

He did, however, warn of possible congestion in the afternoon as people leave for the holiday.

The bridge closed on Wednesday night to allow for final work on the new $6.4 billion eastern span. That span, along with the rest of the bridge, is expected to reopen no later than 5 a.m. Tuesday.
