    The big-rig was resting off the bridge just east of Foster City Boulevard, but the incident, which was called in at 3:24 a.m., forced officials to close both sides of the bridge at 3:34 a.m., according to officials.
    Eastbound lanes were reopened at 4:07 a.m., according to officials. Westbound lanes were completely reopened just after 5 a.m.
    No injuries were reported, according to officials.
    The big-rig was hauling food products, but it is not clear what exactly was in the trailer.
