We’re taking the day off for Labor Day, even though there’s plenty to write about. By now you’ve probably heard crews discovered a crack in the Bay Bridge and it may not reopen tomorrow as scheduled. An announcement is expected late this afternoon. More coverage from our friends at SF Appeal, KCBS and Transbay Blog. For live bridge construction cams, go here. See you back here tomorrow.

  • So how about those steelworkers working over the Labor Day holiday?
