7:04 am
that stretches through the maze onto 580 beyond markets and tableau. it's on to the east shore freeway. it also gets crowded again on the suspension span west of treasure island. getting off the bridge merging onto the skyway at fremont street, but it's all normal. no major problems. if you leave now, drivetime is 21 minutes from the foot of the maze to fremont street. that's not bad. a complete traffic check coming up in a few minutes. we continue team coverage of the rain and the damage. a major road closed in san francisco because of an unstable collapse. live with more on what you need to know to get around. >> reporter: good morning. we just saw three trucks go through the closed road here with lots of equipment and teams here. i want to step out of the way to show you more what's going on.
7:05 am
you see that road closure. this is between malta drive and dell vail avenue. that is going to be closed until friday. take a look at this map to get a better idea where this is. this is because public works crews have to stabilize the cliff that is here. just a couple weeks ago big boulders came crashing down on to the street below. no one was hurt in that incident , but the issue of loose rocks and other debris has returned to this area. and on this busy road with lots of drivers, people who ride their bikes and jog around this area, they could be in danger. they've closed this road until they can assure it say for anyone using it. we are told there will be aerial clues working to move and secure rocks and other debris in the area. after that's done, they'll be conducting a study to find a long-term solution for this problem. there are a couple things to keep in mind this morning if you use public transit or drive in this area. the number 44 line is going to be closed. they are rerouting it this

7:07 am
we are told only minor damage. next video, we have the scene out of marin county. a tree branch falling on power lines. that knocked out power for about 100 homes. the rescue crews who arrived at the scene ended up on the side of the road in a ditch because they say the rain was coming down so hard they could barely see. they had to deal with that as well. and then in novato, a massive tree coming down on novato boulevard. the size was enormous. it blocked both lanes of traffic. as you can see, it was pretty bad for a time. mark? in the east bay, downed trees in fremont. crushed some patio furniture, knocked over another tree, but no damage to the house. no one was injured. here's some pictures out of oakland. a down tree in downtown oakland
