Around 5:30 a.m. Tuesday, a security guard noticed that a large amount of erosion was happening.

It was then discovered that a large water main had ruptured.

The bridge has been undergoing a seismic retrofit. Battalion Chief Cecil Ridge with Modesto Regional Fire notes that the bridge could be closed for at least a few days, with one lane possibly opening up at some point.
