Bay Bridge Span Opens Saturday
A new part of eastbound Interstate Highway 80, which leads to the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge will open early Saturday morning.
Traffic will be redirected to the new portion from the West approach of eastbound Interstate 80, according to Cal Trans officials. The West approach will be worked on as part of a seismic safety project.
A ribbon cutting ceremony will celebrate the completion of the new portion of Interstate 80 and completing the new approach seven months early.
A barbecue is scheduled later on in the day for residents and businesses in the community.
BART might change beverage policy
BART is reworking its beverage policy that might allow passengers to bring their coffee on board trains.
As of right now, there are no drinks allowed on BART trains or platforms. Passengers can be fined up to $250 if caught with a beverage.
In a board meeting on Thursday, officials talked about allowing passengers onboard with coffee in spill-proof cups.
Officials are floating the idea with Peet's Coffee, which will open kiosks at eight BART stations this year.
