There was also an evening Giants baseball game tonight (Monday the 30th). This typically adds 400-500 passengers to the daily Baylink ferry loads.

MSetty asked me to add: RE: the falling freeway--which is EB from Bay Bridge to MacArthur Freeway, I-580 and State 24, and SB connector from I-80 to I-880. Open in opposite direction on these links, and all other connectors. According to the real time monitors, traffic congestion seems about average, probably because a lot of people stayed home or took transit earlier or later than usual peaks. Not clear exactly...the traffic congestion shown around 2:00 p.m. today at baytrafficmap is pretty much the norm... So far ridership on the Vallejo Ferry is up about 50%, which is remarkable for (1) the fact ferry parking was full BEFORE this incident; and (2) travel to S.F. is still passable along I-80 from Vallejo, Richmond, Berkeley and Emeryville to S.F. That 1:00 p.m. trip is probably joy riders--since rides are free today only--I was tempted myself except I have time-constrained work to do!

Looking at the pictures, that was a very ideal location to close several freeways. I wonder who the driver will turn out to be. Thanks JK

As of 10:00 a.m., few traffic snarls or transit overloads. People clearly are flexible and adjust to conditions, whether via road or transit. See S.F. Gate article.
