I was on my way to work this morning and I'm connecting to I5 in a few miles and see an electronic sign that says "I5 closed, use alternate routes". I was thinking, what do you mean I5 is closed? What's going on?
Then the sign changes to say "I5 closed at exit 227", which is where the bridge failed and is like 60 miles north of me. What the hell? If I was going that way, there is no decent alternate route. You drive all the way up there, take some local detour around the failed bridge, then get back on I5. Do I really need to plan that from 60 miles away?
