what is happening southbound. you can see it's bumper to bumper as you make your way south to 237. give yourself plenty of extra time. >> thank you, sue. speaking of the commute, heads up if you drive across the richmond/san rafael bridge. >> the first test starts today. reporter amy hollyfield live at the bridge for us. today's test might be confusing for some drivers. >> reporter: yes, natasha, and that's the message of the day. ignore the signs. and they're putting out a sign to emphasize that point. unfortunately, i have to show you a typo for caltrans. it says sings under we know they mean signs. you'll see signs being tested on the bridge today. you will see them as you drive from marin to richmond on the richmond/san rafael bridge. they will start lighting up arrows at 10:00 this morning, but it's just a test.
you should pretend they aren't even there. you will not have a new lane to drive in today. they plan to start opening up the right-hand shoulder in april. it will be available during peak times to 2:00 to 7:00 every day. the hope is to ease congestion. traffic has increased in this corridor by 13% in the last five years. some commuters are skeptical. >> the one experience we know for certain in california is every time we have a traffic tie-up because the freeways have too few lanes and we add more lanes, what we also do we add more people that come from greater distances and pretty soon the same old bottlenecks occur again. >> reporter: the shoulder won't be open all the time because they like the idea of having it available as an emergency lane when possible. the green arrow will let you know that it is open to traffic. a red x will tell you it is closed. they will be testing every
configuration and every sign over the next few weeks so be aware of that. they're not opening that shoulder lane until april. so one more time, this is just a test. ignore that typo back there. reporting live, amy hollyfield, abc 7 news. >> i can't get over that, amy. so funny. >> they do sing under the test, please let us know. that could be entertaining. we have some great videos from our viewers and our tower cameras capturing the storm and hail had a moved throughout the bay area. >> the hail came down for several minutes from oakland to hayward yesterday afternoon. some areas there was enough left on the ground for people to pick it up and take a closer look. >> they thought it was amazing. they're like it's raining ice. it's raining ice. yeah. and then they thought it was going to be snow. >> all of a sudden it started dropping from the sky and i think we were thinking that maybe it was going to almost start to snow for a minute there because it seemed really cold. >> in clayton it was so cold it
seemed more like snow than hail. the wintry mix of surprises gave bay area residents something to talk about. this was the wild scene in north concord, sheets of rain turned to hail before hitting the ground. the hail melted away pretty quickly. let's look at sacramento now. this is impressive. the hail came down so quick a lot of people thought it was snow. it covered the ground with more than an inch of hail in some areas. the national weather service says some of pellets were nearly the size of a dime. the hail was so deep in spots that cars were slipping and sliding and it made the afternoon commute a treacherous one. the region was also hit with lightning and thunder. in the south bay mt. hamilton got about 3 inches of snow. from sky 7 you can see the snow northeast of san jose. the ground was slushy and wet making road conditions difficult. caltrans closed and crews will be back. anytime the temperature falls below 35 degrees they go out as a precaution.
