I-880 Commuters Should Plan a Re-Route

An off-ramp on I-880 in San Jose is closed because of a broken water pump.


The off-ramp from southbound Interstate Highway 880 to The Alameda in San Jose is closed because of a broken water pump, and will remain shut down until Wednesday, a California Highway Patrol spokesman said.

The on-ramp from The Alameda to southbound I-880 is also closed.

CHP Officer DJ Sarabia said this is not the first time water has created a hazard in that spot.

"That's been a problem area for years. The water was always leaking onto the freeway," he said.

Sarabia said Caltrans is at the scene working to repair the pump.

Yes, I remember some years back they tried to say it was surface water caused by rain, when in fact it was a pipe break. It took forever to fix, not just weeks, but months, as they chose to ignore it. Was on my route to work, so I remember it well and even called Cal trans myself.
