Every time we get behind the wheel of a car, we are engaging in an act of trust. We trust that our car will function properly, we trust that other drivers will obey the rules of the road, and we trust that the roads and other infrastructure are safe. Sadly, there are far too many structurally deficient, dangerous tunnels and bridges that put drivers at risk. As a dangerous roads lawyer in San Francisco, with additional offices in Oakland and Santa Rosa, Attorney Greg Brod helps people injured as a result of deficient roads, bridges, tunnels, and other forms of dangerous infrastructure in Northern California.
Caltrans Investigates Bay Bridge Tunnel Problems
This week, ABC7 reported that Caltrans engineers are working to address corrosion problems discovered in the Bay Bridge tunnel. They are performing tests on the 80-year-old Yerba Buena Island Tunnel, partially in response to an incident last month when a chunk of concrete came loose and damaged a woman’s car. Luckily, the driver was not injured, but the concrete did approximately $3,000 worth of damage to the vehicle.
