going as well. thank you for joining us on this monday morning september 23rd i'm pam cook. >> and i'm dave clark. let's check your weather and traffic. steve is right there. i am. it's the first full day of fall and it will be sunny. everything has lifted to the north. we are not worried about anything expect for patchy low clouds. low 50s. mid 50s for most. everyone is pretty close here. coast bay inland getting that time of year where there is sometimes it's not much-a spread. sunny and warmer for fairfield today. we will start you off with 54 and end up with 81. as far as everything going to the north it's really up near the oregon border. not for us. sunshine for us. temps coming up from those 70s. 60s and 70s by the water. here is sal. steve, good morning. right now traffic is doing pretty well. but it's getting busier in some of the key spots.
for example at the toll plaza we are looking at traffic that is beginning to fill this. those metering lights should be on soon. once that happens you will see a bigger backup. ing to unusual. 10-15 minutes at least. before you make it on past the metering lights. look agent the commute if you are driving on the bridge itself, this is pretty good. as you can see westbound traffic is moving along nicely. the eastbound traffic lighter than that. it's moving well from treasure island to oakland. i want to remind you that howard street is closed between third and fourth. and usually what happens is people that are on howard street have to make this big turn here. there is a huge traffic jam right there. i want to mention right now san francisco freeways are looking good. if you are coming in from the airport 101 looks good all the
way to downtown. it happened last night at the intersection of san bruno and san mateo avenues when a cal train construction crew hit the line. alex savidge is right out there this morning. alex, you just spoke to a spokeswoman about service this morning. >> yeah and she told me cal train service back on schedule this morning after it was stopped last night. the reason it was stopped is because the location of this gas leak is right next to train tracks in this area. at this construction site on san brew foe avenue. this is all part of a $155 million project that raised the train tracks in this area above the roadway. last night workers struck a two inch line as they were doing some work and that line that we will show you is just beyond the orange barriers. you can see this morning pg&e crews are still out here on the scene and they are working to repair this line.
it has been capped though. no evacuations were ordered and no one was hurt but the area was sealed off for a time. the leak made a lot of people nervous because it happened three miles away from the site of a deadly san bruno pipeline explosion back in 2010. pg&e crews who came in capped this leak just after 1:00 this morning after it was spewing natural gas for five hours. the ruptured line also forced cal train to stop all of its trains. >> at that point we were advised to stop our train service. we stopped trains in millbrae and south san francisco. we were able to provide a bus bridge between the two points. and bart also operated. >> reporter: i want to show you the first train of the morning that came through this area at 5:15. it was right on time. the trains where already traveling on those elevated tracks. that is all part of this
construction project. there is still a lot more work to be done. the entire project won't be complete until next spring. cal trains representatives say despite last night's leak, construction work lo go on later on today. in the meantime we have put in several calls into pg&e in figure how long it will take to prepare this broken line and we have not heard back. alex savidge ktvu channel 2 news. time is 6:05. we are following developing news from kenya where al qaeda linked terrorists are still believed to be holding hostages in a shopping mall. this is from outside that shopping mall. look at the smoke rising from the west gate mall in nie row bee kenya. a lot of things have been happening. several explosions were heard from that mall. gunmen attacked the mall on saturday killing at least 69 people and injuring 175 more.
