wednesday. let's check with gianna for a look at traffic and how are roadways shaping up? a couple hot spots. they turned metering lights on at the bay bridge plaza. it doesn't look as bad as it typically does due to the veterans day holiday. parking meters are still being enforced. keep that in mind if you are parking anywhere. you won't see brake lights at the toll plaza. bulk of delays on upper deck of the bay bridge so metering lights turned onto help relieve traffic a bit as folks make their way into san francisco. if you plan on rolling across the bay bridge, give yourself a few extra minutes. it is getting busy for the thursday morning ride. through san francisco everything else looks pretty good. it's looking better in the south bay as well. we were tracking pretty significant delays from an earlier crash. everything is cleared out of lanes, still sluggish north bound 101 from 280, 680 to
