  • Howard Street

    Cars line up at Howard Street in downtown San Francisco, which is closed for several blocks at Third Street to make way for Oracle OpenWorld. Traffic was lighter than usual at midmorning Friday, but a broader test of the impact could come at rush hour and during the morning commute on Monday.

  • Street closure

    San Francisco police were on hand Friday to alert motorists to the closure of Howard Street in downtown San Francisco. The duration of the closure, which runs for 10 days, is unprecedented in recent years, according to a city official.

  • Tent

    As part of OpenWorld, Oracle is building a giant tent along Howard Street in Downtown San Francisco, resulting in the major thoroughfare being closed to motorists.
