Equipment problem delays bridge tower construction

OAKLAND, CA

The work was supposed to begin Thursday morning. Instead, it's being pushed back to next week.

A computer rendering shows how the four sections of the tower will be lifted 30 stories into the air and then lowered and bolted into place.

The pieces are 107-feet tall. Each piece weighs just over a million pounds.

Caltrans is warning drivers not to be distracted by the work.
