Hydrogen embrittlement does indeed occur and it is discovered by a quality testing program executed before installation.

Maybe CalTrans shouldn't be in a hurry to tear down the old bridge. It may more life left in it than the new bridge.

"Anziano said the bolts were installed in 2008 but crews just started tightening a batch of 96 of them immediately below the bridge deck several years ago."
