Bay Bridge closure

Empty overpasses leading to the Bay Bridge are shown in an aerial view, over Oakland Calif., Wednesday, Oct. 28, 2009. The San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge has been closed indefinitely after a rod installed during last month's emergency repairs snapped, causing a traffic nightmare for the 280,000 motorists who cross the landmark span every day.(AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez)
