5:06 am
part of the fourth and king intersection, so it won't affect westbound traffic on king. that's the traffic headed towards 280. but if you're coming off 280 into the city, then you will be detoured at fifth and rerouted. this work will also cut off muni's access to one of its rail storage facilities which, as a result, could impact service city wide. you will want to check the muni website. the intersection is scheduled to reopen a week from saturday night at midnight. so, a week from tomorrow night. again, you're looking at eight days of part of this intersection at fourth and king being shut down. reporting live bob redell, "today in the bay." >> something for commuters to get used to. >> a lot more tolerant today, come monday, maybe a different situation. >> let's just ride the friday high then for now. let's check the temperatures. how high are they going to get today, kari? >> we're expecting it to go into the 70s today after another cool start. 40 degrees in livermore and oakland is at 46 degrees and santa rosa at 39 degrees.
