6:00 am
>> good morning, everyone, i'm carolyn tyler. thanks for joining us on this sunday january 11th. let's start with a quick look at the whether from meteorologist lisa argen. >> good morning, carolyn. plenty of dense fog down to salinas. it's not everywhere. we are looking at rain in southern california. unfortunately this rain will not reach us. maybe mist and drizzle around monterey. but a closer look at the fog shows the quarter mile visibility over in milpitas. a little better by mountain view. you head up toward the north bay, the delta very, very foggy for santa rosa and napa. so right now sfo doing fine but we are looking at mountain view
6:01 am
2.5-mile visibility. mile and a quarter by the delta and six miles in oakland and hayward. we will keep you updated on navigating through the fog but we will also talk about the clouds clearing on out by the afternoon hours bringing more sunshine with hazy conditions spare the air and temperature forecast coming up in a few minutes. carolyn. >> lisa, thank you. being. >> the longest closer of the golden gate bridge continues this morning as workers install a new median barrier. we have a live look right now at the bridge from the marin county side. the closer began at midnight friday. the span is schedule today reopen in time for tomorrow morning's commute. abc7 news reporter nick smith joining us live now from the san francisco side of the bridge. who are you talking to nick? what's the latest? >> i was just talking to chp. i wanted you to see them but they didn't want to be on camera. people have obeyed the traffic
6:02 am
signals and that's one of the things we had to be concern about yesterday. my colleague talked to people who honestly did not know the bridge was closing even though we've been talking about it for weeks. they weren't paying attention they didn't know or they were visiting. we spoke to ot only the golden gate bridge about that but chp about redirecting the traffic and how people were being affected. but all of that is nothing they need to worry about because by this time tomorrow morning everything will be back to normal. take a look at the video we shot yesterday afternoon. sky 7 was over the scene. the last place was put in place and engineers took an opportunity to snap a picture or two. the project chief engineer told me things are on track to open in time for tomorrow, but they still have a few things they need to do. >> you see when we make estimates how long it will take, we are on the optimistic side of our schedule. but we still have to take into
6:03 am
consideration any unforeseen situation because we have other work to do. so i am very happy because everything is going so well. >> last night, crews ran the zipper truck along the barrier multiple times to position the various pieces correctly and to create the proper tension between them. earlier someone asked me if the zipper truck makes a lot of sound and i told them it doesn't make a lot of sound. we heard it going back and forth. it's not a sound that you would necessarily be aware of. but it moves very slow. so it's not anything you need to be concerned about because you will definitely have plenty of time to see the bright yellow truck coming in your rear-view mirror. and they also have plans to operate it during times when there is lower traffic flow. so you don't need to worry about seeing that zipper truck moving right at the height of the 5:00 a.m. morning commute. at the golden gate bridge, nick
