court upholds a judge's ruling that tossed out the governor's plan for those furlough fridays. let's go to elizabeth now. it is friday the 13th for any commuter on 580 in livermore. what a mess. >> there are people just stuck in a parking lot of traffic right now on westbound 580. it was involving an overturned big rig around 4:30 this morning near airway boulevard. that truck was an 18-wheeler. so obviously that's going to take a long time to upright. chp in fact just letting us know that 8:45, another three hours from now, that's when they are hoping to get those two left lanes re-opened but in the meantime i want you to see this backup. it extends well into the altamont pass. we have been getting a lot of calls from the kcbs phone force, randy and mike saying the drivers are just sitting there stuck in it. use first street or altamont pass road as alternates. when things like this happen, unfortunately they tend to get backed up and turn into a parking lot too relatively quickly so ace, i can tell you that is running on time.
6:02 am
but check out this drive time. 87 minutes now on westbound 580 from the altamont pass to the dublin interchange. once you get past airway boulevard, actually traffic looks okay on westbound 580 all in that bottleneck there in livermore but, yeah, just avoid the commute on westbound 580 for the next three hours or so. it's going to be a terrible commute. that is your traffic. for your forecast, here's tracy. >> hey, thanks, elizabeth. i have much better news than what you're talking about. heading out the door, cloudy conditions for the morning. drizzle for the coast as well as some fog. temperatures in the lower to the mid to the upper 50s. here's a look at our forecast for today. it is friday. thank goodness. upper 80s inland, mid-60s at the bay, lower 60s for the coast. we are expecting much warmer weather sunday through thursday. back to more seasonal highs. plenty of sunshine the 90s making a return to the bay area. that's a look at your weather. back up to you. >> looks good. thank you, tracy.
6:03 am
back to you, sydnie. >> all right. we'll keep everybody updated on that mess on 580 in livermore. thank you both, elizabeth, tracy. it is 6:02. a neighborhood in antioch blocked off right now after a suspect was shot by a police officer overnight. julie watts just spoke to some witnesses about what they saw and heard. julie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, sydnie. yeah, we just spoke with witnesses who tell us that this is actually a known gang neighborhood and that they are used to seeing cop cars around here but they started hearing sirens somewhere between 12:00 and 1:00 last night. witnesses also tell us that there was an injured police dog on the street as well as a suspect. now, police are staying tight- lipped about the investigation this morning. as you can see behind me they have closed off this section of d street near lawton at the railroad tracks. apparently where this officer- involved shooting took place sometime around 1:30 this morning. we spoke with the watch command they are morning and he would say at least one officer shot
6:04 am
one suspect. he would not say anything about a police dog being involved in the incident at all. the investigation is ongoing. they have closed off again this section. at this point, no word on when it will re-open this section of d street. police will not provide any details about the suspect, his condition or why they were called out to begin with. but witnesses have been reporting that a life-flight helicopter was at one point called out here and then eventually called off. at this point again we are still waiting more details from police officers. as soon as we get more details, sydnie, we will get them to you. >> thank you, julie watts in antioch this morning where there was an officer-involved shooting. investigators in the east bay are now sure they say that the same man attacked three women at an apartment complex. contra costa county sheriff's investigators have released a new sketch of the suspect. there it is. he is described as 6'2", 200 pounds. authorities say on tuesday, that man got inside a woman's
6:05 am

6:06 am
declared the measure unconstitutional. >> 7 million of them voted on this constitutional amendment to support prop 8 and one unelected judge just trampled on their civil rights. >> because the judge is a homosexual, so he couldn't really do any other ruling. and the moment prop 8 passed, that was what he planned to do anyway. >> the sponsors of proposition 8 promptly filed a motion with the ninth circuit court of appeals. they want the stay on same-sex marriages to continue as the appeals go through the court system. 6:06. state employees can head to work today. furloughs are off for now. a california appeals court ruled that governor arnold schwarzenegger cannot impose those mandatory unpaid days off. the governor had ordered state workers to take three fridays off a month until a budget is approved by the state legislature. but labor unions filed suit and a superior court judge as well as an appeals court have blocked the governor's plan. the governor plans to take the

good morning. well, telecommute if you can. bottom line, don't use westbound 580 through livermore. it is a mess. they are actually now doing intermittent lane closures in the area near airway boulevard. so they can upright this big rig. sounds like they may have just gotten it upright. around 4:30 this morning, a huge 18 wheeler overturned

6:45 am
overturning fertilizer into the road. 20 tons of fertilizer is what we're hearing and so the last we heard is it will take two to four hours for them to clean:the mess. two lanes are blocked. one lane is open at this time and all of this coupled with the fact this it's very foggy along 580 along this area and then this portion of 580 is very winding. so it could be a dangerous situation and coupled with the fact that this fertilizer spilled into the road a lot of people are ruining into a traffic headache this friday morning during the commute. >> thank you, lonnie, for joining us on the phone this morning reporting again from our sister station kovr. quickly i want to show you some of the drive times for that stretch. 136 minutes, this just continues to go up. so more than two-hour delays now if you are heading out of the at 589. those backups extend into tracy and until you get to airway
