interstate 80 is backed up. even the nimitz northbound is backed up. it has been like this for the last 45 minutes to one hour. it is already jammed to the bay bridge. if you look here you can see the west on 80 ride is slow from san palo. the nimitz and north anna is also backed up. remember, the west grand approach to the bridge is restricted to just car pool. single passenger you cannot use it. >> let's look at the san mateo bridge, this is backed up in the westbound direction. if the drive time is that 13 to 50 minutes. the big jim up has cleared at least for a while. a quick return to the traffic maps as we look at the
