All Bay Bridge lanes open after paint spill fouls up commute.

SAN PABLO (CBS SF) — The California Highway Patrol is investigating a freeway shooting that injured at least one person on westbound Interstate Highway 80 in San Pablo Thursday afternoon.

(KRON) — Thousands of motorists are currently stuck in major gridlock after a massive spill shut down all lanes of the Bay Bridge into San Francisco. Officers located an abandoned black Ford SUV with damage from gunshots and a collision on the right-hand embankment just before San Pablo Dam Road, CHP officials said. Just before 4 a.m., the CHP began receiving calls about the spill just west of the Fremont Street off ramp with reports of white paint and epoxy spread across all lanes and paint cans littered across the roadway, said Officer T.J.

The estimated drive time to downtown San Francisco from University Avenue in Berkeley and from the Highway 24-Interstate 580 merge in Oakland is still more than an hour. The trip along the westbound Nimitz, I-880, from West Oakland, appears to be a little faster, with reporting a travel time of 25 minutes to downtown S.F. Original post: Something you know already if you’ve attempted your usual morning commute across the Bay Bridge: An early-morning materials spill — the material involved is apparently dry-wall compound — has all but shut down westbound traffic across the span while crews scramble to clean up the mess. The other person in the Ford fled the scene and CHP officials did not have a description this evening or information on whether that person was injured. A family of three was shot at while driving east in Berkeley between Ashby and University avenues on Nov. 24, and suffered minor injuries from shattered glass.
