encouraged to avoid the area. we also have howard street that remain shut down between third and fourth. due to the drain force going on. and we have many closures because of the transport center being close. if you were headed into downtown, allow plenty of extra time. we will continue to track this and the rest of your ride coming up. as we were talking, san francisco commuters racing for a major traffic headache this morning. chopper five was over the brand- new sales force transit center yesterday. it was abruptly shut down. i should clarify, the actual tower is not shut down, it is the transit center. but several roadways around that area as well after a crack was discovered in a steel support beam. kpix 5's angie connell tells us that officials are trying to figure out what went wrong. >> reporter: this is the beam
in question. cruise down the crack when they were instilling ceilings panels above the third level bus deck. workers were also inspecting a second beam in the cordoned off area. thus writers were shocked to hear the news. >> it's only been open for three months. crazy. >> i don't know what else can happen. we are sitting on piles of trust. >> you would not expect that everything would be good to go. >> reporter: it cost $2.2 billion in opened on august 12 of this year. the powers authority says out of an abundance of caution, it decided to shut down the brand- new transit center. you make i'm sorry for the inconvenience. since the safety matter and we take it seriously. the beam is cracked and the behavior is unpredictable. that's why our engineers one is the close area. >> -- >> reporter: the authority says
they have engineers looking into the possible cause of the crack. according to structure engineered david bono is, if a crack is visible with the naked eye, it is a big concern. >> something may have gone wrong. it may have been in the design or in the construction and it might have been inadvertently overloaded. more weight than what is its assessment that was effective. we don't know yet. >> reporter: is inspectors try to get to the bottom of the sister, bus drivers are being diverted to the old transit center. they hope the new facility will be back open soon. >> i also noticed that the escalators were going out of service within a week of it opening. it's too bad because i think it's a gorgeous facility. but, it seems like there are some issues with the construction/architecture. this morning, drivers are being urged to avoid downtown
san francisco. this was the situation on the ground during the evening commute. cops were arguing with drivers well workers were trying to shop -- shuffle confused bus riders back to the old terminal. >> what is the city going to do if there is a natural disaster or terrorist attack? what is the pat -- what is the plan to get all those people out of san francisco? >> as -- as if this wasn't enough, traffic on market street was already at maximum levels because of a conference. fremont street remains close this morning between howard and mission choking a direct off branch on the bay bridge. parts of the street are awful close -- also close to pedestrians. managers are closer to submitting up report on the cause of a crack window on a troubled high-rise nearby. the owner of an apartment at the millennium tower noticed the crack back in september and it has since been taped up. yesterday an inspector wrote a
window washing rig up the side of the building to get a closer look. the external inspection is one of the final steps before management submits a report to san francisco officials. that is expected to be finished next week. and alameda county, the dublin city council could decide next month on a controversial plan to build an ikea furniture store there. the city's planning commission got an ear full last night mostly about the potential for traffic gridlock. the store will be built up interstate-580. >> reporter: they carried signs and more t-shirts at that at all. no to an ikea in dublin. >> we have a change.org petition going around with thousands of people who have voiced her concerns. >> reporter: they are against the ikea on 27 acres of land the company owns. right off a 580. the store would take a 317,000 square-foot. the shopping center would occupy another 97,000 square
feet on the property. and there would be six acres of open space and an underground parking lot. >> i work in redwood city and i commute to -- there on a daily basis. so my own commute is only like three hours. >> reporter: residents fear the gridlock would get worse if the city council approves the project. >> reporter: what you say to people who feel that this is too much development and it will bring traffic and dublin handle this? >> so what i would say is that we have spent several years really learning the community and making sure that we felt as though we could be a good fit for this community. >> reporter: after receiving an act and environmental impact report, ikea has agreed to work with the city to make changes to mitigate traffic. >> another good thing for residents to know is we don't open until 10 am. we will not have anything to do with increasing the rush-hour traffic. and our afternoon peak also will coincide with rush-hour traffic. >> reporter: bruce has lived in
dublin for more than 30 years. he serves on one of the volunteer commissions for the city. >> it helps our jobs and housing balance. it gives revenue to the city to maintain our parks and other city services. and i think it adds a little bit class to the city. dublin was a poor cousin of pleasanton for a long time. i think we're catching up. >> the planning commission voted last night to recommend denial of the project and the city council is expected to vote on it on october 16. an update on an amber alert. a young modesto boy is safe this morning after being abducted from his home. six-year-old jace costa rushed into his family's arms yesterday. according to his mother, his father forcibly abducted him on monday. police found both of them at a hotel in dublin. officers detained the father and the boy was placed in protective custody. this is typically not the
