The $23 million project to permanently fix the failed bolts on the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge in California, which involves the installation of custom steel saddles, is one month behind schedule. Shims will remain in place until the saddles are installed. The fix is expected to be complete by Jan. 8 rather than Dec. 10, according to Andrew Gordon, the project's spokesman. "Fabrication was very complex and it took a little longer than anticipated," he said.
