SAN FRANCISCO - OCTOBER 30:  The upper deck of the western span of the San Francisco Bay Bridge is seen without traffic October 30, 2009 in San Francisco, California. Thousands of Bay Area commuters were hampered for a third day of difficult commuting after the San Francisco Bay Bridge was abruptly closed Tuesday evening when two steel tie rods and a crossbeam from a steel saddle broke and fell onto the upper deck of the bridge landing on three vehicles and causing one person to suffer injuries. There is still no estimated time for the bridge to reopen. The eastern span of the bridge is undergoing seismic renovation and is expect to be completed in 2013.
