news alert for Bay Area residents
bay area, freeway, news
Woa -- the eastbound 580 section of The Maze, which goes from the Bay Bridge to the 580, collapsed onto the section that connects the 80 to the 880 south because of an explosive gas truck fire last night. Two freeways are completely closed there. This is going to suck.

It's the section right in the middle of this map. Here's the SF Chronicle blog entry on it.

UPDATE: ABC has a video of the collapse.

That is amazing. I have trouble imagining a worse area for such a collapse in terms of traffic impact.

Yeah - not only *right* on an overpass, but a very major overpass!

BART will be absolutely packed for the next couple of months. I wonder how my old co-workers will cope.

This is insane. Goes to show how fragile our infrastructure is...
