Two-thirds of the boat has been dismantled and all lanes are now open. One lane of the bridge had been closed during the dismantling of the trawler which crashed into the bridge during a windstorm on Tuesday.

Caltrans initially said the damage did not compromise the structural integrity of the bridge, but they plan to take a closer look in the coming days, once the entire boat is completely removed.
