Report: Bay Bridge commuters paying for leak problems

Bay Bridge

Bay Bridge commuters are stuck footing the bill for mistakes made by Caltrans during construction of the new eastern span of the bridge, according to a new report.

The San Francisco Chronicle is reporting that Caltrans decided to scrap a drainage feature on the bridge, leading to hundreds of rain water leaks that threaten to corrode the structure.

The bill totals $1.4 million and counting.

The project's chief engineer says plans are now in place to fix the problem.
