long tunnel. nnel boring machine again and again.) (nats) prep work has already sts gathering samples de even with sky drone 5 flying high above the san luis reservoir at the maximum altitude allowed by law, it still cannot capture the proposed size and scale of this pro -- the size and scale of this proposed new tunnel happening in the region of pacheco pass between gilroy and chowchilla. one massive tunnel 13.5 miles long would skirt the reservoir just to the north. >> tunnels are not cheap. that's just part and parcel of doing this. >> reporter: dan richard said building one tunnel means they wouldn't have to build multiple portals, the entrances and exits, which are expensive the the other big reason? moving that gigantic tunnel boring machine isn't cheap either. >> if you have a series of smaller tunnels, you're setting up a machine, going a distance
6:01 pm
and setting it up again. with a long tunnel boring machine, you can just keep going. it may take a long time, but it can be cheaper because you aren't assembling and disassembling the tunnel boring machine again and again. >> reporter: prep work has already begun with geologists gathering samples deep underground by the plan route. engineers will get a sense of the rocks below the surface allowing them to better estimate the total cost and speaking of cost, the gilroy chowchilla section was budgeted for $5.5 billion, but the l.a. times published an analysis saying a 13.5-mile tunnel could make or break the bullet train, interviewed several experts from around the world and said it could cost from 5 to $14 billion. this engineering professor was quoted saying this is not good news for taxpayers of california. >> i don't agree with that.
6:02 pm
there is no option of doing nothing. we're going to have more people in the state. the cost of doing nothing means more people stuck in traffic, more airline delays. all these things cost us money. the better deal for the taxpayers is to invest in a more rail system than to continue to rely on just building more and more freeway lanes. >> reporter: the authority is required by law to report back to the legislature every two years on estimated budgets and timelines. that new report is due sometime next year. if it turns out this long tunnel costs more than expected, then the authority hopes to make up that gap by reducing costs in other parts of this very huge, very complex project. in down town san jose, kiet do, kpix5. new at 6:00 contra costa county is putting big restrictions on recreational pot sales. kpix5's susie steimle is live in concord with a vote that came down afternoon.

6:04 pm
that. >> so businesses won't be able to sell in particular areas until we allow them se or to grow or to process. >> reporter: the county is also considering other limitations. for example, from 64 would allow anyone to grow up to six marijuana plants outside their home. supervisors here are considering limiting that number to three. >> we want to make sure, just like any business, that cannabis operations are responsible, that they don't negatively impact neighbors and communities. >> you know, limiting that would, of course, limit my business, but the real thing is it puts some constants on the customer. >> reporter: -- constraints on the customer. >> reporter: baez said the cost of growing marijuana plants inside is much more expensive. you have to buy one of these tents, have the correct lighting and water the weeds yourselves versus outdoors. >> outdoors, they call it a weed for a reason. you throw a seed out there. even if you don't do anything, it's going to grow. >> this is a new law just
6:05 pm
taking effect and we want to do it thoughtfully. we'd rather do it right than fast. >> reporter: now prop 64 is, of course, a state law which will take effect if cities or counties don't make any new ordinances of their own, but contra costa wanted to have some individual control, which is why it decided to make this change today. multiple other bay area counties are doing the same. in concord, susie steimle, kpix5. in the meantime santa cruz county board of supervisors approved recreational pot sales. 12 licensed dispensaries will be selling cannabis starting january fist. california's top judge -- january 1st. california's top judge wants to do away with cash bail, her voice adding powerful support to complaints that the system unfairly punishes the poor. there is a proposed alternative. >> reporter: we're here in front of the aladdin jail bond

6:07 pm
the judge more tools to use to determine whether a person can be released safely into the community until that case is heard. >> reporter: instead of bail the judge would decide whether to let the person go, maybe with some kind of monitoring or supervision. they could also decide to hold that person until trial. >> i think you have a real public safety issue here. >> reporter: jeff daley owns bad boys bail bond. he said without the financial incentive to come to court, defendants just won't show up. >> with bail there's a good chance we're going to have a family member cosign for that defendant. mama is going to make sure that johnny is doing what he's supposed to. >> reporter: still the chief justice of the california courts is now saying she supports that report's findings. as to what happens next -- >> but it is really up to the chief to decide where we go next. plan. >> reporter: as we were set -- >> reporter: as we were setting up for our shot, we spoke to a man who was completely distraught and he said a friend of his was
6:08 pm
arrested and no one had money to bail this friend out and that he was about to lose his job. how can it be said the young man that we talked to that a poor person who just gets arrested has to lose their job? just one of many questions that will be hopefully answered as this debate continues. live in san francisco, melissa caen, kpix5. a pleasanton high school student was arrested for bringing a loaded handgun to campus. it happened yesterday at village high school. school officials got word the student had the concealed weapon, so they called police. the student was arrested without incident and was taken to juvenile hall. well, the bay area feeling that fall heat today, a live look right now across the bay from downtown san francisco. a second day of unusually warm temperatures for october. paul, did we break any records? >> the answer is surprisingly no. no records were broken here. southern california, 103 degrees, absolutely. for us just well above average, up to 20 degrees above average. sunnyvale, half moon bay,

and the west actually the coast the one place to get the most heating because the air has the longest opportunity, the farthest to travel to get from the central valley riding over mountain ranges and the air heats up as it sinks. even with the sea breeze kicking in tomorrow, you'll still be about 10 degrees above average in the 70s right at the immediate coastline. why are you not in the 90s at the beach tomorrow? because the center of the ridge of high pressure is beginning to move. as it slides east, the lightest of light onshore flows, the afternoon sea breeze tomorrow keeping you cool at the beach. it will take a lot more movement from that ridge to get us back to normal. that happens this weekend. we're warm tomorrow, warm again thursday, more significant cooling friday and by the weekend this looks like a normal late october pattern, low pressure to our north. that ridge is now to our south and the same clockwise flow around it brings a west to east flow. that will restore order back to the universe here in the bay area where you won't be 90 degrees in your apartment. you'll have mother nature's air conditioning. we're above average still wednesday and thursday, more
6:51 pm
significant cooling likely this weekend and looking at the halloween forecast just a week from right now, mainly dry and pleasant. the heat will certainly be gone by then. 14 degrees above average in concord tomorrow, 89, 89 also in san jose, not a record likely tomorrow. pacifica down to 75, hayward still warm, 84 degrees. low 90s pittsburg, antioch, san ramon, 80 in san francisco. i guess that's a cooldown. santa rosa 91 and lake port tomorrow sunshine and 86 degrees. extended forecast, we cool down a few degrees thursday and friday, much cooler by the weekend and back to normal by halloween next week and that is your forecast. back to you. welcoming back the world to wine country, tourism has taken a big hit since the wildfires, the major campaign to bring people back. >> coming up tonight at 10:00 on nightbeat after several dangerous incidents on the roads involving vehicles and cyclists tonight we're asking you do you feel safe riding your bike in the bay area, yes,
