Senator DeSaulnier to hold Transportation and Housing Committee hearing on Bay Bridge bolts

Today, Senator Mark DeSaulnier, who represents Antioch in the California State Senate, will Chair a Senate Transportation and Housing Committee hearing on Caltrans and the Bay Bridge.

In an email to constituents on Monday, DeSaulnier wrote:

“Tomorrow, I will be chairing a Senate Transportation and Housing Committee hearing on the Bay Bridge and Caltrans. There have been many recent media reports shedding light on the busted broken bolts and questioning the potential seismic safety of the new Bay Bridge. I called this hearing because the commuters, who have seen their tolls more than double to pay for the new bridge, deserve answers.

Opening a safe bridge must be our top priority, but there should be an ongoing investigation into the bolts. There are many questions that must be answered at an institutional level by Caltrans, and the right people need to be held accountable.

The hearing will be held in the state capitol tomorrow, but you can watch it live using the link below.”

When:
Tuesday, May 14

1:30 p.m.
