6:00 am
6:00 a.m., 54 degrees outside. good morning, this is "nbc 10 news today." i'm tracy davidson. >> i'm vai sikahema. sunrise is about maybe 10, 15 minutes ago. let's check in with nbc 10 first alert meteorologist bill henley and his neighborhood forecast. bill? >> we get a few glimpses of it this morning, especially in the lehigh valley. 45 degrees right now. eastonç seeing some clouds mov in and they're illuminated nicely by the rising sun. the temperature will be climbing, too. clouds will be here. there is even a chance of a shower less likely in the lehigh valley, than it is in philadelphia and some of the suburbs. 48 degrees. new tripoli seeing the clouds increase with sunshine this morning. 63 degrees at lunch time. even though we're in the 40s and 50s right now, there will be clouds around during the day,
6:01 am
afternoon temperatures will be warming into the 70s. at the shore, cooler with a chance of showers, already seeing rain drops in delaware and south jersey. those showers are on the move. they won't be around all day. you can see them to the south. they're already thinning out. a sprinkle or two in the philadelphia area moving into chester county but most of the morning looks like it's going to be dry. there's the seven-day forecast at the bottom of the screen. it does have more chances for rainfall later this week. i'll take a look at the shower chance for today with the futurecast when i'm back in ten minutes. let's see how the traffic is moving. jessica boyington has your first alert traffic. >> bill, we were watching 422 right now. this is right around trooper road. no problems in either direction so far. eastbound right here, that's typically where we see delay and backup first. no problems here, eight minutes from 29 to the schuylkill expressway. so speeds are into the 60s and moving along nicely. dennis township, a different story. over in new jersey, there's a utility pole down on route 47.
6:02 am
it's blocking both directions. they have detours around the scene, right around beaver dam road. that might be something that will cause you small problems. 295 around 644 in west deptford, new jersey. no problems in either direction. just a few moments ago i was looking at sun glare. it looks like it seems to have cleared just a little bit. no problems with visibility there, either direction. no backups. tracy? >> jessica, thanks. happening now, speaking of the streets, things are moving on the vine street expressway. >> construction crews are replacing deteriorating bridges over the vine street expressway. it's a project that won't be finished for another three years. katy zachry is live in center city. katy, 6:00 hour, this is the time of day when more cars are on the road. how's it looking there for you? >> 0 a wednesday morning it's looking pretty good so far. i'm not sure what the reason is for that. but as traffic picks up later
6:03 am
this morning, we will see slow going around the detours here around logan square and the ben franklin parkway. the new traffic patterns that are in place in this area, it's all part of what's happening along the vine street expressway. overnight, we got a close-up look at the progress. the work end around 5:00 this morning. it will restart again tonight at 11:00 p.m. those six hours overnight. it's the only time legally the construction crew can close the road. this kind of closure will take place next week and throughout the year, i'm toll. this project will not be complete until 2019. in the end, there will be half a dozen new bridges crossing the vine street expressway. the current ones date back to the 1950s. >> it was a type of construction method that was popular at that period of time. but now it's outdated. the new bridges will certainly provide decades of safep+el above the expressway.
6:04 am
>> so federal dollars are paying for this entire project. in addition to the improvements that you will see along the vine street expressway, up here where i'm standing in the logan square section of the city and the ben franklin parkway, you'll see improvements like new sidewalks, new pedestrians bridges and an expanded park in front of the free library of philadelphia. new lights and trees. a lot to look at. we just have to wait a few years for it. reporting live in center city, katy zachry, nbc 10 news. meantime, another project impacting drivers on i-95 bridge over spring garden street, resurfacing will continue until may 23rd. nbc 10's jessica boyington tweets out road alerts every day. keep up with the problems affecting your drive by following her on twitter. today hillary clinton will bring her campaign to our area. the democratic presidential candidate will speak at camden county college in blackwood. this afternoon's appearance comes less than a month after
