The Swinburne Bridge, which connects South Oakland to Greenfield, has been closed to cars since early June for improvements that were supposed to only take two months.
Drivers who are affected by the extended closure of the bridge told Channel 11’s Rick Earle on Monday that the situation is causing a major headache.
“I wish they would hurry up, so it would make it a little easier when I take her to and from work,” driver Akiel Gary said.
Kelsey Lansaw echoed Gary’s frustration.
“For two months they didn’t do anything, it was just closed and they weren’t doing anything,” Lansaw said.
Crews were working on the bridge Monday, and a spokesperson for the city told Earle that there’s been structural work going on underneath the bridge.
The spokesperson admitted that there have been setbacks in the progress because of rain.
He said he expects the bridge to reopen around Labor Day.
