Google Maps don't care about it, don't care about the "traffic" layer, don't care about their new feature which is supposed to precise how time it take if you are in the traffic jam.
They were faster to fix when a freeway bridge collided months ago.

I see it too, but it was the same in April sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi ... and you weren't able to drive, on Google Maps & in reality, on the collapsed bridge.

And it doesn't seem to work even when the traffic layer is red:

My office is a mile south of that bridge. Very scary scene last night and today. The worst news is yet to come as they just started diving at the site to get to the dozens of cars in the water.
