Quiet neighborhood in Richmond District becomes overcrowded with Waymo cars

A residential neighborhood at the end of 15th Avenue in Richmond District has suddenly become overrun with Waymo cars, CBS SF Bay Area reports.

Neighbors say the disturbance is perplexing, as they've seen these technology-packed, self-driving vehicles enter, make a multi-point turn then turn out of the dead-end street. Some have reported seeing 50 Waymo cars a day for a couple of months.

"I awoke to a strange hum and I thought there was a spacecraft outside my bedroom window," a resident told CBS SF Bay Area.

Logan Webb, 24, is set to be the youngest pitcher in San Francisco Giants' history to start a winner-take-all game, SFGATE reports.

Webb will start Game 5 vs. Dodgers on Thursday night at Oracle Park. He has been a standout player this season. Despite the Giants' Game 4 defeat, both manager Gabe Kapler and catcher Buster Posey endorsed Webb.

Great Highway closes to traffic again

San Francisco Public Works on Tuesday closed the Great Highway once again without giving an estimate for reopening, KRON4 reports.

An excessive buildup of windblown sand on the road needs to be cleaned up, so Sloat to Lincoln will be closed.

The Great Highway reopened on Aug. 16 after shutting off traffic at the start of the pandemic.
