After police enforced an eviction notice on protesters camped in downtown Oakland as part of "Occupy Oakland" this morning, transit through the area was affected. 

Riot police entered the camp at Frank Ogawa Plaza on Broadway and 14th Street just before 5 a.m. 

The 12th Street BART station had been shut down earlier this morning, but as of 6:30 a.m. the station is open with access only through the 11th Street entrance and exit, a BART official said. 

Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District bus service has been disrupted and there are detours in place throughout the downtown area. AC Transit has listed detoured bus lines on their website at www.actransit.org.
