Caltrans crews reopen Caldecott Tunnel

One of Tuesday's big problems has been resolved. The Caldecott Tunnel opened in time for Wednesday morning's commute after Caltrans crews cleared out a clogged storm drain overnight.

The number three bore was shut down twice Tuesday because storm debris and runoff were beginning to back up inside the tunnel.

Overnight, Caltrans got breaks in the rain that allowed them to dig out four feet of mud that had stopped up a storm drain.
