Terror alert on bridge.
The bridge was placed on a "superheightened" state of alert after information was shared through an inter-agency coalition, Mary Currie, spokeswoman for the bridge authorities said last night.
She would not elaborate on the details of the threat or specify the information's source.
However, bridge board president Harold C Brown, told the Contra Costa Times the FBI was gauging the credibility of a threat that terrorists planned to crash an aircraft into the span.
