Closed!
You might have learned this news the hard way this morning if you tried to commute Interstate 280 this morning: it's closed.

Yep, Caltrans has to shut down a two-mile stretch of the freeway to replace four bridge hinges on northbound and southbound I-280 near Cesar Chavez Street in San Francisco. The whole project is meant to make the highway stronger for all those soon-to-come earthquakes.

The 104-hour closure started at 9 p.m. last night and will remain off limits to traffic until Tuesday at 5 a.m. This exercise will repeat over July 4 and Labor Day weekends.

You can tell Caltrans is as unenthused as you are about this closure:

In any event, there's yet one more reason for you to spend the weekend chilling on couch.
