So, the Bay Bridge will NOT be open this morning. The Bay Bridge has its own Twitter page so you can check its status (updated every few hours).1
Update @ 5:58am: “Bay Bridge repairs are undergoing final inspections. The bridge is expected to open later today. Check back for updates and opening time.”
When I had to drive to Palo Alto last Thursday I completely avoided all the bridges because traffic was such a mess. It took me longer, but at least it took me longer in a predictable fashion.
