Traffic Sucks Pretty Much Everywhere This Morning

Updates at the bottom of the story

And here you thought getting out of bed this morning was hard -- getting to work this morning is no easier.

To put it bluntly: traffic sucks this morning, and here's why:

If you're coming from the East Bay, there's a commuter bus stalled in the westbound lane, and traffic is a nightmare.

A Sig-alert was issued this morning at about 6:50 a.m. while passengers were being transferred onto an AC Transit bus. As of 7:30 a.m., a tow truck still hadn't arrived according to press reports.

If you were lucky enough to make it to San Francisco before this Bay Bridge backup started, well don't consider yourself in the clear yet. Traffic downtown is just as miserable. We're hearing that there's a roadblock in the Financial District and cars are being diverted and buses are dropping off passengers at Bush Street.

We put in a call to SFPD to get more information on this mess and we will tell you more when we know more.

Down on the Peninsula, Caltrain is reportedly experiencing delays, too after a San Francisco-bound train broke down.

Update 9:33 a.m.: Muni Spokesman Paul Rose tells us that the F line was delayed and traffic was backed up at Market and Laguna when the line was blocked by a tow truck that had run out of fuel. The scene was cleared up by 8:30, but traffic was still bad.

  • 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.'"
