Niles Canyon Road Reopened After Fatal Crash Cleared

FREMONT (CBS SF) — A fatal car crash Monday afternoon forced the closure of Niles Canyon Road from Interstate Highway 680 to Mission Boulevard in Fremont for almost six hours hours, police said.

Fremont police weren’t immediately available to provide details about the crash, which was reported at 12:34 p.m. Monday.

Fremont police spokeswoman Geneva Bosques said drivers were being asked to avoid northbound Highway 680 because the last time Niles Canyon Road was closed during the commute period, traffic on the highway “was an absolute nightmare.”

Bosques said people who are driving from the South Bay or the Peninsula toward eastern Alameda County should get on northbound Interstate Highway 880 to eastbound state Highway 238 to Interstate Highway 580 and “avoid 680 at all costs.”

The closure ended shortly before 7 p.m., when CHP officials announced all lanes were clear.
