MTC Teams With Caltrans And The Region’s Transit Operators To Respond To Freeway Closures

mtc.ca.gov, May 07, 2007

As a result of the tanker truck crash and fire early on Sunday, April 29, a portion of the I-80 eastbound to I-580 eastbound connector collapsed onto the connector between westbound I-80 and southbound I-880

Bay Area transportation agencies are teaming up with Caltrans and the state Business, Transportation and Housing Agency to boost capacity on the region’s rail, bus and ferry systems in the wake of the accident and fire that closed two key freeway connectors in the East Bay early Sunday morning: a portion of the eastbound Interstate 80-to-eastbound Interstate 580 ramp, and the southbound connector between Interstate 80 and Interstate 880. The segments are part of the two-level "Maze" in the vicinity of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge.

The governor on Sunday declared a state of emergency, authorizing one day of free transit rides (subsidized with state funds) throughout the Bay Area on Monday. Meanwhile, transit agencies scrambled to boost service along key routes — including BART, the Alameda-Oakland Ferry and AC Transit. While the free-ride program ends at 11:59 p.m. Monday night, several Bay Area transit agencies will be expanding their operations for as long as necessary during the current transportation emergency.
