By Nick FarrarUpdated February 15, 2019 09:00:56A lot of California highway traffic is back to normal, with more than 100,000 vehicles being rerouted for safety.
The state’s highway system, which was put on a state of emergency in the wake of last week’s deadly derailment of a train on the Pacific Coast Highway, is back operating in its normal, normal way.
Traffic was being diverted for at least two hours from the Interstate 10 corridor in the San Joaquin Valley.
At one point, it was estimated that at least 10,000 cars would be in traffic.
But it appears the toll may have been much higher than that.
The Interstate Highway System tweeted early Tuesday morning that it was reopening on the I-10 corridor in Oakland and San Francisco, as well as in the Los Angeles metro area.
The freeway system’s Twitter account tweeted that it would continue to reopen in the south and the north, in both directions.
The highway system’s reopening timeline says that between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m., it would reopen at its normal operating level.
The I-40 highway will remain closed for two hours, but the Interstate 495 freeway will be reopening by 1 p.b.m and the I/680 freeway will reopen by 7 p.p.m, the highway system said.
The agency said the reopening was expected to last until 1:15 p.c.
The I-80 freeway reopened at 2:30 p.d.
