Just Stay Home Tomorrow

Just about everyone knows that the Bay Bridge is closing tonight for reconstruction this Labor Day weekend. But it also means that when it’s shut down tomorrow, it will the first time that the span has been closed for traffic on a regular work day since the Loma Prieta earthquake knocked down a section of the bridge twenty years ago. As a result, the commute, especially on BART and the San Mateo, Richmond-San Rafael, and Golden Gate bridges promises to be horrific – unless a lot of people do the smart thing and just stay home. In fact, the governor and the state Legislature would have been smart to declare Friday a Bay Area holiday.
