keep that possibility in mind and all around the bay. it is not causing a slow down heading towards the santa cruz site. getting over to the tri-valley and no major issues. we'll show you on waze of what we are talking about. the slower drive is right here on 72. the purple right here is the fastest way right now. but as these bridges build westbound, you will want to stick with the limit so far. follow us in the morning and join us nbc bay area waze, that's the team that we'll give you all updates on the road. >> more for you this morning, a shoot out at a busy intersection, the dashcam video that you cannot miss.
