#BREAKING: Caltrans plans to close all four bores of the Caldecott Tunnel for as long as five days due to #PGEShutoff. https://t.co/1GxKC0fLPJ
Among other things, this means the Caldecott Tunnel, which was the site of two famous fires and which handles ~160,000 cars per day, might just close up for now.
Also he said PG&E is going to try to get backup power secured to keep the Caldecott Tunnel open. Caltrans has said the major East Bay route will close tomorrow without electricity.
UPDATE: Caltrans is working through the night with our partners to provide power to both the Caldecott and Devil’s Slide tunnels. Motorists can expect them to be open during the power shutdown. Motorists should stay tuned to local media and use @511SFBay
for the latest updates. https://t.co/foqiFBGSqG
BREAKING: Per CalTrans - PG&E is installing 4 generators inside the Caldecott Tunnel - so it will not have to close. Work will begin at 10 pm and last between 10 and 14 hours. @KPIXtv
We & @CaltransD4
are preparing for full closures of the Caldecott Tunnel in @CCCounty
&@AlamedaCounty on SR 24 & the Tom Lantos Tunnel along SR 1 in @Pacifica
as soon as this evening, due to the @PGE4Me
Public Safety Power Shutoff #PSPS. The tunnels can't operate without power.
PGE will provide generators for the Caldecott Tunnel so they will not have to shutdown during emergency power shutdown@nbcbayarea
Just spoke to @PGE4Me
The Caldecott Tunnel will stay OPEN during the planned power outage.
PG&E says they will provide backup generation for the tunnel, so that when/if the power to the tunnel is cut, it can remain open to traffic
JUST IN: Planned power outages will not impact Caldecott Tunnel. PG&E providing Caltrans with generators to keep it open. https://t.co/moN7HVBhdV
Caltrans is engaging closely with partners towards ensuring that alternate sources of power are available to provide continual operations for both the Caldecott & Tom Lantos Tunnels; four generators for Caldecott if electricity is lost. A similar alternative for the Tom Lantos https://t.co/0EY2dD4ebJ
Clarification: Per CalTrans - Caldecott Tunnel will remain open for the 10-14 hours while PG&E installs the generators. There may be an odd lane closure here and there, but CalTrans says it will remain open. @KPIXtv
UPDATE: PG&E to install 4 generators in Caldecott Tunnel at 10pm tonight to keep it open during power outage. Work will last 10-14 hrs. Caltrans, PG&E working on generator plan for Tom Lantos tunnel https://t.co/zc0gN9NF3x

Possible Closure for Caldecott and Tom Lantos Tunnels Due to PG&E Power Shutdown. More info https://t.co/ITRwoLsl4h
Why are you tweeting? Corrupt PG&E is shutting down per to almost 1,000,000 residents of your sh*thole state! Why haven’t power lines been buried? Why no plan for Caldecott tunnels? I pd $5/gallon for gas today and I heard NONE OF THE NEW TAXES ARE GOING TO ROADS! #poweroutage
BART has backup power generator for its tunnel by Caldecott, but none for Caltrans with threats of earthquakes etc? https://t.co/lRo8CCFPUP
You moron, while you have been railing about mythical "Climate Change", you and your brethren have completely ignored our infrastructure. We now find out that the Caldecott Tunnel will have to be closed because of a lack of backup power to run vent fans during power shutdown.
Found out tonight that EBMUD customers won't have water, because the pumps are electric.
All these consequences: the Caldecott and Devil's Slide Tunnels. EBMUD water. Solar panels not working.
They better do one helluva post-mortem on this when it's all said and done. #PSPS
PG&E Power Cut: Caldecott & Devil’s Slide Tunnels Generators will be Open
