I ran into this traffic nightmare also. The strangest thing was there were no Palo Alto Police at the Charleston/ SanAntonia intersection to direct traffic even though the incendent had been going on for quite a while.
I guess the Palo Alto Police don't work with the Mt View Police.
The traffic backed up across SanAntiona Rd as Charleston was blocked just past the gas station and there was no way of knowing this ahead of time and there was only the option of turning around.
I have heard that the Police seldom even come to South Palo Alto as they are all directed to work downtown and in the business areas.
