    I believe Stockton (Post to Market) is now reopen to private autos, all the changeable message signs are gone.

    Also, that reroute of the 8x and loss of the 8 shuttle will really seal off the NE forcing the “Central Subway is needed, see how slow things are” argument. What will happen when the federal funding doesn’t come?

    Streetsblog editors: you really need to link to the Bay Citizen, not the Chronicle, for the full story on Muni’s chief officers’ decade plus falsification of on-time performance measurements.  The Bay Citizen reporter, Zusha Ellinson(?), researched and uncovered this outrage. His journalistic contribution to a reform of transit policy should be honored and celebrated.
