There's still no word yet when the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge will be open to traffic again.

California Department of Transportation spokesman Bart Ney said Sunday morning that crews were still conducting stress tests and modification work.

He did not have a projected time for when the bridge would open, but suggested commuters should again on Monday morning consider other alternatives to get across the bay.

The bridge has been closed since Tuesday night after two rods and a crossbar installed over Labor Day weekend to repair a crack failed, sending 5,000 pounds of metal into rush hour traffic.
