Fallen Eucalyptus on Gayley Road Causes Fatality; Orange Shuttle Rerouted

Jan. 8 UPDATE: The roadway is still closed today. It is anticipated to reopen later today.

As reported in Berkeleyside, a person was killed after a 250-foot eucalyptus tree fell onto their car on Gayley Road yesterday, Jan. 6. Because the northern portion of Gayley road is still blocked to traffic (between Hearst Ave. and Stadium Rim Way), the Orange shuttle route will be using Blackberry Gate. Minor delays are expected. The roadway is expected to reopen later this afternoon.
