tv Today in the Bay NBC February 9, 2012 5:00am-6:00am PST
good morning to you. thanks for joining us. seconds away from 5:00. i'm laura garcia-cannon. >> good morning. i'm jon kelley. time to check in with meteorologist christina loren and it feels good today, not friday but it is friday eve. >> it is friday eve. just got to get through today, the good news is for commuters out there, you had to drive through the dense fog yesterday. not so much the case at this point. we could see the dense fog develop at the coast. as we head through the next couple of hours, right now we're clear as a bell from san francisco all the way down the peninsula. we head throughout the day, 70s on the temperature map and then the rainy pattern develops as we head through the weekend. so a lot to talk about. first let's get you out the door with mike inouye. >> let's look outside, we did show the golden gate bridge. and there are more crews. they are moving the construction crews that were on the north side of the bridge. no delays as a result because the traffic as you see is so very light.
we have as many construction trucks i think on the bridge as commuters. but they are getting ready the move the cones in the center as well so expect flashing lights as they continue on the northbound direction for the next few minutes. we'll get a look at sunol. 680 moves smoothly. this is the area north of the express lanes for 680 into fremont. things have been moving nicely. since those open add few months ago. we're getting to and from work, also bob redell is out on the roadway for doesing roadway. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, mike. we're on southbound 880 from fremont heading into milpitas. and how many of you at home have been in this situation. as you ride in to work trying to get to mountain view, southbound 880, once you hit westbound 237, there is so much congestion and boy, you wish you could be in the carpool lane. you don't have more than two or more people in the car. well, starting in march and you're going to see this in a
moment as we pull up here, they are going to open up an express lane. basically it's one of those hot lanes that you hear about on 680 sunol grade where they are converting this carpool lane into a toll lane f. you have a fast track transponder if if you are solo you would be able to pay. it would start at 30 cents. probably averaging $3 and right there i don't know if you can see it but there is the sign saying it's going to open in march 2012. and this is from here, 880 southbound on westbound 237, and also in the opposite direction, eastbound 237 to northbound 880, it would shave roughly 10 minutes off your drive. and any one stuck in bay area traffic knows that is an eternity. looking at the westbound highway 92 approach in san mateo. this is another area where one of these express lanes will be opening. if you want to take a look at a map you can get a better sense
of how vast a network the commission would like with all of these express lanes. 2015 they expect to have hundreds of miles of these, not only on the westbound approach to the san mateo but the highway 84 approach to the dumbarton, westbound to bay bridge toll on 80, 580 and 880. any one who drives to the south bay is familiar with this as was evidenced when they opened up the express lanes on the sunol grade on 680. you would need a fast track transponder. this is the kind of drive you could expect. here we are in an hov lane on 237. a little early but if you arsolo driver boy, this could save a lot of headaches. reporting live in milpitas, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> we're learning the federal
