Bay Bridge tower repairs set to begin Tuesday
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Work is set to begin at the Bay Bridge next week to fix the damage caused by an oil tanker that crashed into a tower.
The tanker bashed into one of the towers on the western span, damaging what's known as a fender.
That fender absorbed the impact and no damage was done to the tower. However, it's expected to cost $2 to 3 million to repair.
Caltrans crews will begin work using steel and recycled plastic on Tuesday and says it will take approximately four and a half months to finish the repair.
