6:19 am
all five lanes a short time ago. now i'm noticing they are pushed off to the right-hand side. that's giving me a little hope they're getting close to wrapping this up or containing it and they will hopefully be able to open up a couple more lanes. look closely, it's tough, the lower deck, you can see everybody is pushed off to the right-hand side. not sure. chp telling us they still don't have an estimate for when these lanes will get back open. it is brutal. i can't stress this enough. i want to flip over to my traffic maps and show you what this backup is like. you're jammed into the sonoma area of san francisco due to the sig alert and then the westbound side really heavy too in the same area, westbound 80 past treasure island a disabled vehicle still in the middle lane, long delays into the maze and beyond at this point. either direction of bay bridge is brutal. check in with meteorologist mike nicco with a look at the forecast. >> hey, alexis. you are never more than seven minutes away from my accuweather forecast. think about jumping on a ferry instead of bay bridge pretty quiet on the water this morning. the fact that it's going to be a
