Crews need to conduct more enhancement work, stress tests and inspections before the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge can be opened to traffic again, California Department of Transportation spokesman Bart Ney said Sunday evening.

"We're not making a prediction on when the bridge will reopen," Ney said.

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