6:10 am
joined us, we have spring breaks rotating around the bay. probably getting over there via tully road or capital expressway, but we don't see as much of a backup. 87 is probably your best bet around the area. alvin has to go through the area. he's taking 680 up to mission. meanwhile, we'll zoom up through the rest of the area. we do see a light volume for the tri-valley. talking about that as well as no real problems for the caster valley wide. we'll give you a look at the dublin area, as we had the
