slide in sausalito. is a bus stop there affected? i know which one you're talking about, just a little bit before that, it is a pull-out there. since the 2 right lanes are closed here, we have video of it, it could be affected but i haven't been able to get through the golden gate transit. one thing for sure, they are not going to open these lanes up until 10:00 this morning. 101 between rodeo and the tunnel, part of that has to do with that pole being down there. it is going to great create a big backup. the marin county commute can't take 2 lanes taken away, i would suggest doing a different thing if you can. don't go to the city until after 10:00, or go and give yourself plenty of time. dense fog all over the place as rosemary and i are on fog patrol this morning. the traffic here is not too bad, it is backed up for about
20 minutes. i don't think it is going to be much of a delay today passed 7:00 or 8:00. this is highway 4, we have a deadly crash another crash in the same area and it is kind of a mess here, especially if you're driving a large truck it is one of those things that you're going to be delayed. it is a little bit further away from that area. 5:49. a lot of dense fog here in oakland today. >> oakland as well as hayward. oakland reporting visibility down to about .08 of a mile. take it easy out there. fog along highway 1. 3-miles is the visibility in santa rosa. it is out there. sometimes it will catch you off guard, the low clouds, a little bit of drizzle along the
