Southbound I-880 Reopens

Caltrans and Granite Construction worked feverishly to repair southbound I-880 after a gasoline tanker exploded and burned yesterday, and the lanes were open by 7 last night. The Chron does a nice job chronicling how quickly Caltrans went to work, scrubbing the road and laying down temporary asphalt to get the highway up and running again. Explosion? What explosion?
