    After a power failure shut down the center bore of the Caldecott Tunnel on eastbound state Highway 24 Saturday night, the power was restored and the tunnel reopened around 8:30 p.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

    The power went out around 5 p.m. and motorists were warned to expect severe delays and to seek alternate routes.
