that apartment complex will eventually be torn down but there's hope for others wanting to avoid that fate. according to the mercury news, the u.s. army corps of engineers will study long-term solutions to three areas here in pacifica that have been damaged by some powerful storms. that could lead to the federal government paying for much of the $6.2 million in repairs. those three areas are the pacifica pier, the seawall along boech boulevard and esplanade avenue where the apartment complexes are located. the army corps will do a three to four month study to see if the projects are of federal interest and if that's the case, they'll spend 18 months doing a feasibility study. reporting live in pacifica, matt keller, abc7 news. happening today, golden gate bridge officials could approve $2 million to pay chp during construction of the suicide net. according to sf gate, crews would be working at night and with the limited space up there, they're going to have to block

6:29 am
a live look right now at the opening bell at the new york stock exchange. investors are hoping to continue the gains made yesterday when the dow passed 0,000 for the
6:30 am
first time. growing frustration on b.a.r.t., a new survey shows riders are losing confidence in the system that so many of us rely on every day. plus the cost of college could be going up today for thousands of california students. why gavin newsom is blasting that plan. and of course the honors pouring in for mary tyler moore, including memories from her iconic costar, dick van dyke. let's get to meteorologist mike nicco with a check of your weather. >> all right. let's take a look at what's going on with live doppler 7. i was checking the latest reports and all those sprinkle that we were showing earlier that have now dried up didn't really leave much outside of point raze. here's a look at low clouds across san francisco. 6 to 43, not quite as cool as yesterday but still, dress warmly. 50 to 53, sunshine at noon, 52 to 54, more sunshine in the afternoon and then this evening it will be dry. even with the quiet weather out
6:31 am
there, a lot of issues alexis has been covering. we're going go back live to sky7 right now. they're over niles canyon road and i realize it is still really dark out here this morning but this is where we had another vehicle that went off the roadway, rolled into alameda creek, and it's just about the same location as the tragic crash over the weekend. the driver did make it out okay. he has been transferred to the hospital. to me, it looks like traffic is still moving along okay in both directions. i don't think we have any lane closures. i have seen plenty of flashing lights and we do have that car that is about halfway submerged and could take a couple days to get that out. so hopefully once we have more daylight, we'll have a better idea of what we're dealing with. westbound 88, couple earlier trouble spots have cleared. if you are a b.a.r.t. rider, here's a question for you, what is your biggest beef with b.a.r.t.? >> probably not a surprise to most of you, the agency is facing its lowest approval rating ever. abc7 news reporter elissa harrington live for us in walnut creek. >> reporter: reggie, natasha, i talked to some b.a.r.t. riders
6:32 am
here at the pleasant hill b.a.r.t. station and they tell me they are satisfied with b.a.r.t. when it comes to getting where they need to go, but they are unhappy with the cost and the lack of seats. that's pretty consistent with this new survey that just came out that asked 5,000 b.a.r.t. riders how satisfied they are with the service. satisfaction is the lowest it has ever been in the 20 years that they have been taking this survey. 31% of b.a.r.t. riders are just not satisfied. 41% say that b.a.r.t. is not a good value for the money. the price to ride has steady increased over the years. i checked and round trip from pleasanton hill to san francisco is $10.80 for a round trip. that's $54 a week. one passenger i talked to tells me that his commute home can get crowded. >> it's only bad like if the train's backed up or people kind of crowding in by the doors because they can't -- there's no seats. that's sometimes a problem.
6:33 am
>> reporter: other areas for improvement, according to the survey, the noise level, unreliable elevator service, and more space for bags or luggage. now there is some relief on the way, a $3.5 billion bond was approved by voters and new rail cars are on the way. reporting live at the pleasanton hill b.a.r.t. station, elissa harrington abc7 news. if you'd like to see the b.a.r.t. survey for yourself, we are posting this in our abc7 news app, also on and we want to know what you think. so post your comments on social media with the #dearbart. we might share them on the air. well, new this morning, until the south bay, chp investigating a crash involving a critical care transport vehicle in san jose. witnesses say that car rolled over several times on westbound highway 237 before it finally came to a rest on zanker road on the off ramp. sorry for this. it appears the drive is an emt. incorrect video here. the chp says he called for help after the accident and was taken
6:34 am
to the hospital with minor injuries. no other passengers were in that car. we're getting a better idea of what to expect in the first 100 days of president trump's administration. he gave his first interview as president to abc's david m and among the topics covered, defunding 200 sanctuary cities across the u.s. like san francisco, oakland, and san jose. he also dove into his claim that millions of people voted illegally, even though there's no evidence of that. the two also talked about another campaign promise, reviving water boarding and other interrogation techniques. >> when isis is doing things that nobody has ever heard of since medieval times, would i feel strongly about water boarding? as far as i'm concerned, we have to fight fire with fire. now, with that being said, i'm going with general mattis. i'm going with my secretary. i'm going to go with what they say. >> another big issue, the wall along the mexico border. president trump reinforced that mexico in some form will pay for
6:35 am
it. house speaker paul ryan says congress will front the money. we've seen estimates as low as $8 billion all the way up to $20 billion for that wall. in san jose, local leaders and immigration advocates are coming together the fight the president. they held a small rally at cole circle yesterday to denounce his latest orders. >> thank god i am now a citizen but i've suffered the fear that many in my community suffer now. >> it's going to lead to a lot of harassment, racial profiling, and american citizens are going to get harassed too as they did before. >> we have one tool that is more powerful than either congress or the president. and that is the u.s. constitution. >> san jose is a sanctuary city just like san francisco and oakland. the mayor adds the executive orders will not change how his city is policed. president close. >> aye. >> stay tuned board member. >> aye. >> thank you. motion passes. >> two school districts in santa
6:36 am
rosa passed a resolution last night opposing betsy devos for u.s. education secretary. this is becoming a national trend. critics of the conservative billionaire cite her lack of experience with public schools and her support of school vouchers and privatization. devos is going to be up for a confirmation vote by the senate later this month. happening today, a federal judge in san francisco is expected to hand down the sentence to pg&e for its role in the deadly 2010 be san bruno pipeline explosion. a jury found the utility guilty of six felony counts, five for violating pipeline safety standards and one for obstructing the investigation into the explosion. each count carries a $500,000 fine. the maximum pg&e would pay is $3 million. eight people died in the blast. happening today, contra costa county supervisors are going to meet to ratify a state of emergency because of all this. recent storm damage. this washed out road in pinole is just one example. flooding, mudslides, sing holes, they've cost an estimated
6:37 am
$9 million in so far and this declaration is going to let the county apply for state and federal aid. now look at crow canyon road. it is open this morning, but drivers can't help but wonder for how long. for the second time in just a week, a falling tree closed that major artery for hours and this time, it trapped a woman inside her car. that woman is shaken, but she's all right. a 100-foot tall eucalyptus tree came crashing down last night on the northbound lanes just past cold water drive. that tree took power lines down with it. and it took an hour before pg&e could de-energize the lines. last friday on that same stretch of road, another tree fell and caused injuries. >> i think just because of all the rain that we've been having, i think that the trees and the root systems are not holding up as well as they should. >> and look at that. traffic was backed up for quite a way until the tree and the car were cleared off the road. crow canyon road has closed several times this winter
6:38 am
because of storm related clean-ups. new video this morning out of washington, just north of seattle. look at this massive three alarm fire that erupted last night in an apartment complex under construction in linwood. two information suffered nonlife threatening injuries. surrounding buildings r evacuated. the berkeley apartment building where six young people fell to their deaths has quietly been renamed. irritate used to be called library gardens. berkeley side reports it is now called the k street flats. the building has been repainted and the two balconies that once faced outward have been removed. in june of 2015, five irish students and one from rohnert park were killed when a balcony they were celebrating on collapsed. the city of berkeley found dry rot as the cause. happening today, uc regents voting on a tuition increase for the first time in seven years. the regents are meeting in san francisco. if approved, tuition would go up by 2.5% so that equals $282 a
6:39 am
year. and that would apply to all ten university of california campuses. it would bump tuition to $11,502 a year. officials say financial said would cover the extra costs for about two-thirds of all students. still, lieutenant governor gavin newsom says he's going to vote against it. >> we do a great job to protect those that are very low income. but we do a terrible job providing resources for middle income families. and that's who's going to bear this price. we keep raising this to a point, we're going to make college unaffordable. >> uc president janet napolitano is urging the regents to approve that increase. state lawmakers opposed to the tuition hike say the university needs to cut spending. members of the assembly and students rallied at the state capitol yesterday. they claim uc spending is just out of control and that it's not fair to pass the financial burden on to
6:40 am
let's start down in the south bay, the cool spots at 39, we've got saratoga, los gatos, santa clara, 40, san jose, 41 degrees we've got 43 right now in san carlos, one of the warm spots, san pablo, alameda 47, look at the trio of 39s in the san ramon valley. lafayette, danville, out towards livermore and then 39, novato. you can see some of the clouds and the beautiful sunrise developing on 101 and 880. public transportation chilly at your stations this morning but at least dry. dangerous surf at beaches through 3:00 tomorrow morning and if you're driving, it's going to be dry all day. look from the roof camera, some of the fog that's trying to leak out of the north of about 10:00 and then hazy sunshine. more 60s saturday, more 60s sunday, more 60s, monday. i'll show you that in the next chance of rain coming up in fact accuweather 7 day forecast. taking you back to sky7 right now. they are over some typically
6:41 am
heavy traffic on 880 but you can see that heavy line on that southbound side. per usual. that is crawling along. let's flip over to the traffic maps and check out a couple of earlier trouble spots that really have merged into one long backup here. westbound 80 that was a crash we had just before 5:00 this morning. that one finally clear from the left lane about 15 minutes ago. you're still slow well beyond highway 4 and then past that, we had a rollover crash near golden gate fields, blocking the right lane for a long time so you can see we have heavy traffic all through the richmond area and a quick check of drive times. not terrible considering. but highway 4 to the maze on westbound 80 that's going to take you about 38 minutes, another 15 across the bay bridge and southbound 101, san francisco to sfo, 10 minutes for you. we still have about a 20-minute delay due to an earlier power issue for b.a.r.t. riders today. we'll take a look at a couple other slow spots coming up. that moment the dow climbed above a record 20,000 points, we're going to see if it's going
