the pipe that broke. about 5:15 this morning the first southbound trains rolled through here at san bruno and huntington avenues where a multi-million-dollar construction project is happening. of course this is just three or four miles from the site of the deadly gas line explosion in 2010, so certainly rattled nerves. when a cal trains construction crew hit a gas line last night that's when this started. no injuries but passengers were taken by bus or b.a.r.t. to the next destination. why the pipe was hit in the first someplace unclear but here's the plan moving forward. >> pg&e is going to have to watch this area working with our construction crew, we're going to do that very closely as we move forward throughout the day. >> reporter: all the work going on part after $155 million project to elevate the tracks above three streets here in san bruno for traffic safety. work will continue today, in

additional parking. that could impact the nature preserve near by. parents fear the team will end up paving over soccer fields with the idea of building new fields closer to the preserve. it's home to a butterfly garden and indian burial ground. environmentalists don't want it turned into soccer fields and officials urge people to stay calm because there is no final decision on the issue yet. >> a lot of talk around 9ers aldon smith. he is on an indefinite leave of absence this morning as he deals with personal issues stemming from his arrest on friday for dui. bob redell is live at the team's stadium. bob, i think a lot of people were surprised that he played yesterday and now we know if he's going to play against the rams on thursday. >> reporter: yes. good morning. 49ers ceo making this
announcement after yesterday's loss against the colts saying that his star linebacker aldon smith would not be playing in thursday's game, this after his arrest friday for driving under the influence and that he could be out longer. in other words, he could be missing more games. he is taking this leave indefinitely. smith did apologize and acknowledged that he will seek help. >> apologize to the team, to the organization, my family, everybody i let down. also wanted to let it be known that this is a problem and it's something that i will get fixed. >> sitting somebody down and paying them to sit down when they are going to seek treatment in the future, that didn't seem like an appropriate punishment. i know it might not sound reasonable, but for aldon to be able to face the media, face his teammates, and take full
responsibility for what he's doing we felt that was the best situation. >> reporter: friday's arrest is not the first time smith has been in legal trouble. a man sued him claiming he was shot at a party at smith's house. the suit alleges that smith was drunk when he fired shots to get people to leave. bob redell, "today in the bay." >> it's not all bad news for bay area sports. the oakland a's are going to the postseason. the a's officially won a.l. west title during the third inning yesterday when the kansas city royals beat the texas rangers. the a's didn't need the rangers to clinch the title. they beat the twins 11-7. they have six games left on the road. >> i know we have some oakland a's fans watching. they are tweeting out. >> exactly. always good to hear from you. >> yes, we do. >> we're sending birthday

across the san mateo bridge. both of those spans moving smoothly. palo alto, stanford coming back in session so watch university and the vicinity of sanford university. foothill college, that will be, and in the south bay santa clara and deanza. another live look shows the bay bridge with a backup. looks like the lanes may have been slowing down, the metering lights turned on. quickly building from the toll plaza back to mid parking lot. >> thank you. it's 6:10. a prominent political group outlawed in egypt. >> more on our developing story in kenya. new details on smoke and gun shots. >> hackers have defeated that

so here's how it works out. we stop the clock you can see a little shower activity to the north of napa. not expecting much but the best chance is in the north bay and throughout higher elevations, the east bay hills. overall we'll see cloudier weather, cooler weather as well as temperatures falling from mid-80s back to the low 70s by wednesday. so 85 in livermore, 78 degrees in fremont, 80 in redwood city. let's show you thou changes look on the seven-day outlook. it's a new week and we have significant differences. as we head throughout day and tomorrow temperatures tumble. 74 degrees by wednesday. isolated showers mostly in the north bay. i'll let you know if the chance gets better. there is a slight chance an area of low pressure could get further to the south. 81 degrees by thursday. then this weekend, mike, a return of the 90s so we keep that whiplash going. nothing stead they time of year.

so sounds like it's out of lanes but is a distraction. expect slowing into richmond on westbound 80. to the tri-valley, 580 starts to bog down. now you see the slowdown spread over to sunol. 680 moves nicely out of pleasanton. a look out to the roadways in the south bay, a smooth drive north. no problems, typical slowing. northbound 101, 87, 280 moving nicely. watch 85 and 28 through cupertino. 101 and santa clara will have more traffic. we'll see how things are shaping up for san rafael. a nice easy build. novato to the san rafael bridge a smooth flow for 101
