seismic safety standards of the are regional east bound. >> pam: how certain are you about the new pectorals for the new span. >> we are very certain that the new-materials for the new span that way is investigation is how we found to material faulty. >> what is the bullet manufacturers saying about this and are there going to be covering this is the bull to manufacturer? are they saying anything? the bolts manufacturer are they saying anything? >> their name is in dyson. they are being cooperative. >> pam: you can feel the pressure. caltran how are they dealing with the pressure? >> they have been under the

you can see the old bridge there in the background. the new span is made up of two parts.. the skyway portion here and the suspension tower section which is here. this part of the deck actually hangs from the tower. the bolts that we're talking about are located here. this tower is what's called pier e-2. it's located right where the skyway portion of the bridge meets the suspension tower section. now, if we move in a little closer you can see that there's actually a gap between the deck of the bridge and the top of the the support towers. in between are these devices, which are bearings and what are called shear keys. these devices are designed these are bolted to the towers by rods that run between 9 and 24 feet deep into the concrete. these are the bolts that are breaking. and another problem is that they are breaking inside the tower. and because the deck is in place, it's impossible to remove the bolts or to repair them. there are a total of 288 anchor rods here, 32 have
broken and caltrans is currently testing the rest of them. if the bolts can't be repaired, caltrans will have to find a new way to secure these joints to pier e-2. in the newsroom, charles clifford kron 4 news. >>pam: tonight a message from a father in richmond is simple -- stop the violence. yesterday, the father's son was gunned down in this richmond neighborhood. two other men were injured police have not made any arrests but they are offering a 10- thousand dollar reward in the case. kron 4 j-r stone is following the story. he joins us live from richmond. j.r. >> jacqueline: >>reporter: pam, the vigil is going to start in about 20 minutes from where i am in about one-quarter of 1 mi. from the office fo the 19 year-old that was involved trying to make a better life for himself. and trying to get a job. i also spoke with the father that there are
