5:33 am
single of orange cones. the bridge officials say given the recent attacks in france and london in which vehicles were used, this may not provide enough protection for the marathon's roughly 15,000 runners. >> there have been several instances around the world in which vehicles have harmed people recently. we don't want to see anything like that happen here. >> reporter: historically about 4,500 cars travel northbound on the bridge during the marathon. the date the board is considering closing northbound direction is july 23rd between 6:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. limited to three hours. southbound lanes would reopen. someone traveling from marin to san francisco would be able to cross. the board meeting begins here at the toll plaza. i'm chuck coppola, "today in the
