  1. Thank you for posting this ! I was dining at a Burger King near the freeway and was wondering why there were three(3) helicopters hoovering above. My husband and I after dining got onto the East freeway and noticed the backup as well as the streets prior to getting on the freeway jam packed with car more than usual. I told him probably a bad accident where traffic flow was diverted off the freeway. Good to hear it wasn’t an accident but the traffic that was backed up on the 210 and people who got off packing the streets were insane.
