(Update 3:15 p.m.) Police said the device appeared to be of "military grade" so they contacted the Travis Airforce Base which is now investigating the suspicious device. But don't worry about this affecting your ride to the Giants game tonight. Police say traffic in the area has already cleared up after the cops shut down two city blocks earlier today.

For now, traffic has been blocked at both the 100 and 200 block of Channel.
