California Highway Patrol just started escorting traffic to the
San Francisco side.
The state engineers completed testing after an early test
forced revisions to the repair which have been more carefully
done than those on the Labor day weekend. The welds are
covering more surface area and the tie rods collars have
newly designed surfaces designed to allow more even pressure
and a shock absorbing compound is between the tie rods and
their housing to prevent the sort of damage that happened before.
And it is officially open and the first cars will be in
San Francisco in a few minutes.
