The Oakland-San Francisco Bay Bridge, the Bay Area Toll Authority’s busiest bridge, was expected to reopen today after it was closed earlier in the week when five tons of recently replaced steel supports fell into traffic and damaged cars.

The Bay Bridge is being replaced at a cost of $6.3 billion because officials don’t think it can handle the biggest California earthquakes. Parts of the bridge collapsed in the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. BATA sold $1.3 billion of Build America Bonds this week to finance the latest phase of the project.
