Falling concrete shuts down Bay Area bridge

California

RICHMOND, California (KRON) – Both directions of the Richmond-San Rafael bridge are closed after large pieces of concrete fell from the upper deck on to the lower deck.

CHP says they originally got a call about an accident and when crews showed up they noticed that chunks of concrete has fallen. 

Authorities say some chunks of concrete are as big as footballs. 

The chunks fell from the upper deck onto the lower deck near the toll plaza. 

CalTrans is currently inspecting the bridge. The cause is still under investigation. 

Vehicles are being held out of a precaution, according to CHP officials. 

There is no estimated time of re-opening.  

People stuck on the bridge are getting out of their cars and some near the entrance of the bridge are even turning around.
