we're going to fix them all. not a joke. this is gonna be a gigantic change. from ktvu. fox two news. this is the fourth and that bridge collapsed dramatically, underscoring the president's message on the need to shore up the nation's infrastructure. welcome everyone to the four i'm alex savage and i'm heather holmes. we're getting more we'll have more on that story in just a moment, but first, some breaking news that we want to bring to you right now. ktvu has learned that the director of california's embattled employment developed apartment. is now stepping down . rita seanez announced her resignation to staff and an email she was hired a little more than a year ago to try to clean up that troubled department. our investigative reporter, brooks jarocz is working the story right now and have an update for us soon. once again, though the head of the dd has now stepped down. now to that bridge collapse in pittsburgh, the ntsb now investigating what happened there this morning, a commuter
4:01 pm
bus and several cars were on the bridge at the time of that collapse. officials say the bridge was last inspected in september. it's condition was reportedly rated as poor by the pennsylvania department of transportation right after today's collapse, rescuers repelled nearly 150 ft, while others formed a human chain to help rescue people run the bus. which was partially dangling off the bridge. technicians repelled down using ropes to go down over the side. they helped the firefighters that were here initially on scene also did like a daisy chain with hands, just grabbing people and pulling them up. now. three of the injured were transported to hospitals. none, though of the injuries is life threatening. the collapse of that 50 year old bridge, though, underscores the reason for president biden's visit today to pittsburgh. he's pushing for more funding for infrastructure. in his stalled build back better bill. united
4:02 pm
states of america used to be ranking number one in the world. and investing in the future. we must change that trajectory. we have an opportunity ahead of us right now. while there is bipartisan agreement that funding for roads and bridges is desperately needed. republicans claim that the president's plan is less focused on traditional infrastructure. and more on liberal priorities. in light of that collapse. today, we thought it would be appropriate to see how california's almost 26,000 bridges are doing. so we signed ktvu tom vacar to find the data sorted out and tell us the rest. according to the federal highway administration, california has 1493 bridges classified as structurally deficient. that means 5.8% have at least one key element. the deck the superstructure or foundation rated in poor or worse condition cost to put them in fear or good condition. about $12 billion.
4:03 pm
the big push to repair, refurbish and rehabilitate the bridges began in 2017, the legislature and governor brown enacted sp one, the largest transportation bill in state history. the other key players public support, raising even more money at the ballot box. the voters of california and the voters of the bay area in particular. deserve a lot of credit. in the last four years, the number of troubled bridges has steadily decreased by 21% taking 319 bridges off the deficient list. those are your tax dollars at work. and we're all safer for it. this is a direct result of planning, commitment and execution on the part of caltrans, as well as funding coming from state and federal highway funds. tolls and gas taxes. there are multiple sources of funding to do the ketchup job that you describe. and now comes even more big funding from the federal
4:04 pm
bipartisan infrastructure law signed into law by president biden in november. we're looking at 849 million for this fiscal year alone. and 4.2 billion over five years of the nation's top 250 most heavily traveled but structurally deficient bridges 61 or in california. the bay area has 37 such bridges all of southern california, 18 and the central valley. six of the nine bay area counties, only five have deficient bridges. alameda and contra costa with 11 bridges each san mateo was seven, salon a with six and santa clara with two deficient means needing work , but under constant inspection and nowhere near to close them down. we thought there were any structural problems with the bridge. we would close it immediately and address them now, you know. tom vacar ktvu fox two news well, the chp has some new details on the deadly
4:05 pm
crash on the richmond san rafael bridge that happened on wednesday night. investigators say a big rig telling an empty trailer was headed east. when it crashed into a toyota sucre that had stalled there on the bridge . both vehicles were engulfed in flames. the truck driver was not hurt. however the driver of the toyota was trapped in the vehicle and died at the scene. that person's name has not been released. the chp says that drugs or alcohol do not appear to be a factor in that crash. all right. the 49ers are putting the finishing touches on their game plan for sunday as they try to make it back to the super bowl for the second time in three years. you know how hard it is to get their anything. that's the biggest thing that's how hard it is to get there, and you just want an opportunity to get there again. because you feel if you can get there, you can do it. but i know i know the road that it takes to get there and it's not easy. um and you're looking for every second you can to get that opportunity again. the teams had a good season, but

4:16 pm
to keep people safe, including providing students with k n95 masks and the pain might unified school district is dropping its outdoor mass requirement for students during pe classes. the district says that covered cases have decreased from 228 the week of december 10th two, just 27 last week, the vaccination rate at schools is more than 90% mask will still be required outdoors other than during pe until february, 4th. the district says if cases continue to decline, it will eliminate outdoor masking altogether on february seven. students in the oakland unified school district will not be required to be vaccinated against covid-19 until the start of the next academic school year. in the fall. the district had set a deadline of monday for all students to be vaccinated or have a medical or personal belief exemption. but the school board voted to extend that deadline to august 1st. that's because nearly 3000 unvaccinated students would be out of school
4:17 pm

4:18 pm
winds generally light we do have napa reporting eight mph oakland coming in from the northwest at nine and coming in from the south over novato at six. in our hills this afternoon. the winds not too bad we've got to oakland north reporting 17 mph big rock ridge reporting 16 so partly cloudy skies a cool conditions but feeling pretty nice out there still at this hour, a little bit cooler about areas like santa rosa. meanwhile happening. bay is up by five degrees over yesterday and half moon bay, one of the warmer spots right now, at 63 degrees that actually just dropped like a second ago. it was 66 a moment ago. 65 right now in the southeast san jose and in the north bay. 64 over napa so getting into the evening hours, those clouds will continue to drift in from the south will wake up tomorrow morning with partly cloudy skies and patchy fog are inland city is going to be near freezing once again some of our areas in the north based santa rosa looking at 32 tomorrow morning, we're going to be very, very culture. you there. meanwhile the inner east

4:20 pm
margin of time. the clock is already ticking for seafood suppliers. court engineer joe oliver is working hard to keep enough crew members healthy, too, man fishing boats. we worked with the state of alaska and i made sure that our crews were kind of isolating trying to stay on the vessel without getting into the community. seafood hubs like seattle saw all time sales highs last year trial that global sees ceo bob de settle says it takes a lot of sacrifice for cruz to bring in enough fish to keep those numbers up. it's hard work long hours. many months away from home many months away from the children. the price of fresh seafood went up almost 7% in 2021. costs of fuel supplies and packing materials are all increasing on fishing boats, putting even more pressure on suppliers. we've got to keep our boats running. they have a lot
4:21 pm
of costs to it. the pandemic wasn't very good to us. one seafood marketing group says people are buying fish to take better care of themselves during the pandemic. we're entering into a year that we have record consumption. all estimates are that that consumption is not only going to continue to increase, but it's going to continue to increase at record levels. and more assess supply and production might take a slight dip this season, but there will still be plenty of supply to meet that demand. so when you guys down in the bay area put in that big order up here, it should be able to get down to you guys just fine. in seattle. jacare alexis ktvu, fox two news. we certainly hope so, jake. thank you. proposed vaccine mandate for students and look at president biden's first year in office coming up after the break we'll catch up with the issue is host alex michaelson for a p
4:22 pm
4:23 pm
oh, wow, barbara corcoran! good morning. sorry, we don't need any business help now. we're gigillionaires. what? we're gigillionaires now. i don't get it we have at&t business fiber with hyper-gig speeds. but i just... so thanks, but, we're doing great. i'm so happy for you! but i'm just here for my order. oh. entre-pin-eurs? yeah, my bowling team. i like it there's money in puns. do business like a gigillionaire at&t business fiber, now with speeds up to 5-gigs. limited availability
4:24 pm
and pediatrician richard pan proposed legislation to mandate the covid vaccine for all students to attend in person classes about the question is, is this a policy backed by science or a step too far? that's the big debate coming up this weekend on our political show. the issue is host alex michaelson joins us now for a preview. hey, alex. hi alex and heather. nice to have both of you together for a change. yes this week are big debate is over this issue of vaccine mandates. of course. dr pan says that he would get rid of the personal belief exemption that would go into effect in january of next year. it's very controversial. we've seen in some school districts that have already tried this. a lot of students have not complied with that concept. so this week on the show on the left, we have progressive attorney ethan beerman and on the right daily wire host michael knowles. here's some what that's saying.
4:25 pm
don't stop the spread. they don't stop infection. we know that the infection fatality rate for kids from all forms of covid , and especially from this most mild form. the micron variance is extremely low you're looking at about 400. uh deaths of kids under 18 per year since the pandemic began, and when you factor in severe comorbidities, it's probably significantly lower than that. that is much less than deaths from cancer. that's much less than deaths among children from heart disease. vaccines are already required. this is par for the course to protect our children in the community, and it's important to note the science is overwhelmingly in favor of taking a multi layered approach , like dr pan talked about and as long as there is still medical exemptions allowed. then i think that that's the right move for community protection because i don't want my child brick coming home and transmitting it to my grandparents and then them passing away. so alex. what
4:26 pm
we've seen in the past is any time california has debated a vaccine mandate. it's been incredibly emotional with the opponents among the loudest on this issue versus any other issue. now you add covid and all the political causation of the vaccines. on top of that. this issue of the vaccine mandate for kids could be the most hotly contested issue that we see in sacramento over the next year, almost as hotly contested as rams versus 49. no contest there, alex. i mean, i see you. we appreciate you wearing your 49ers read by the way today, so , um, you're going to be like everyone else so far stadium, right? i well, that is part of the story actually marcotti on the show, talking about the fact that niners fans are much better when it comes to actually going out and supporting their team.
4:27 pm
you know, for the rams. we had 21 years where he didn't have a team here, so congrats to the niners for at least getting more fans in the stands. the question is will they be the better team? of course, they have won six times in a row. but this is the game that really matters and go rooms absolutely go niners faithful fans, of course through and through. it should be a fun one on sunday, though, we'll talk about it next week. i'm sure enjoy the game, alex. alright, same to you. all right, take care. alright if you've been dreaming of a four day work week and who hasn't? well you may be in luck. we'll tell you about the new proposal by a california lawmaker aimed at making your weekend a little longer. also, house speaker nancy pelosi, paying a visit to sfo today, the changes coming to the airport. funded in the peloso
4:28 pm

4:31 pm
the infrastructure bill is also expected to help pay for noise mitigation efforts in cities near the airport and upgrades to sfo's electrical power distribution system. caltrain is a big step closer to electrifying its service along the peninsula linking the south bay with san francisco representative santa s shoe and jackie speier were among the leaders said an event this morning to mark a milestone for caltrain. it's the final installation of a foundation that will provide power for the electrified service. there are more than 3000 foundations along the 150 mile caltrain corridor. and today the final foundations for a new modern 21st century climate friendly electrification of this system. is what we're celebrating today. so this day is taking its place in caltrain history. in washington senators dianne feinstein and alex
4:32 pm
padilla today called on the department of transportation to boost federal funding for the electrification project. right now it's total cost is $2.4 billion. the electrified service is on track to begin running in 2024. well a state lawmaker from riverside county is now pushing for a four day work week here in california. the proposal by democrat mark takano would require employers to pay workers overtime after 32 hours. supporters of the measure say the four day work week has actually increased productivity in other countries. but opponents say a shorter workweek would cause more problems for california business owners. they were already struggling during the pandemic. the casa sanchez building in san francisco's mission district is on track right now to become one of the city's first latino owned properties to receive historical landmark status. the board of supervisors unanimously passed an ordinance on tuesday that

4:35 pm
the mission into what it is now. it was the organizing efforts that happened. i mean the mission merchants associations with a relationship with casas with carlos santana. brought these missions, too. musicians to the mission, but they also were engaged in community. um in helping those institutions like st peter's or healthy. people, other businesses, i think bob sanchez took. a lot of leadership in doing that. he being one of my mentors when i started my business 30 years ago , so he's been in leadership, hispanic chamber of commerce buo really look at the social heritage aspects of this business. with the work of his sister, martha sanchez. it having this ingenious, uh, corn
