Crews began tearing down the area surrounding San Francisco's old Transbay Terminal on Saturday.

It's being demolished to create a little more room for the temporary terminal which opened last weekend.

Workers took out a ramp that connected the terminal to Interstate 80 and as a result east Howard Street will be closed until 5 a.m. Monday morning.

The new $1.5 billion Transbay Terminal will generate 48,000 new jobs is set to open in 2017.
