Bay Bridge Traffic Is a Total Mess This Morning

It's the perfect storm of commuting hell in San Francisco today. First, some Muni lines were shut down early this morning (and still are as far as we know) after a fire broke out in West Portal. Now, we are getting reports of a massive traffic jam along the Bay Bridge after a car overturned early this morning.

According to new reports, the SUV flipped over about 6:50 a.m. near the Fremont

Street exit in San Francisco. Two westbound lanes were closed until 7:30 a.m, and an ambulance arrived at the scene; however, no word on the extent of injuries.

What we can tell you is that traffic sucks this morning.

The Chron says that cars are backed up to Oakland and it will take at

least 50 minutes for you to cross the Bay Bridge into San Francisco.

Maybe take BART?

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
