steel. a good alternate would be 24 or 5.80 if you're trying to get issues on the southbound side here in lafayette to get another traffic collision. 24 westbound west cullen is road not seen any major delays along highway 24 although the accident is here heading into the city this morning from the east. a little under 9 minutes traffic moving along pretty nicely. things are conditions are very slick and wet. so definitely want to take your time as you're out there cutting across towards the peninsula a little under 14 minutes and we'll leave you with a look at the richmond. sandra fell bridge a little under 9 as you travel out of richmond darya james, back to you. thanks it is a lot of work. but i like that. a lot of people enjoy it around thanksgiving time. however, we could be getting through to some problems because. >> it looks like the crab season is being delayed. all right. let's find out why kron four's will tran is covering this live from fisherman's wharf in san francisco. high will. the reason why its to late is supposed to start on november 15th. the reason why
5:32 am
these crab traps are going to sit here for a while because they want to make sure the other. >> animals in the ocean that they're safe. we're talking endangered whales and turtles in an area that they are hovering around right now. and until they leave the area, they are protected and they are not going to allow the fishermen to take the straps and take them to this very abundant area. now i'm not a crab fisherman, but i did my crash course on this. this is an area that you need to know if you are trying to put crab on to your thanksgiving table. this is an area in sonoma mendocino line all the way down to lopez point in monterey county. it's area go out there every year, which typically starts on november 15th. but the state, the department of fish and wildlife. they've noticed a lot of humpback whales in that particular area. so they don't want all those lines to be dropped into the water and the whales are floating around swimming around all of a sudden they get tangled and
5:33 am
all of those lines and then they can get injured or even killed and that's why they're pushing this back. we don't know when they will restart this and this could be a problem. you might say why don't they say say november 22nd, get out there and start fishing. well, the problem with that is it takes in about a week, guys to set up all the the infrastructure to have the votes in place o put their crab lines in the water to do all of the work before they start harvesting and that is why thanksgiving could be in jeopardy. so we'll talk to some fishermen. they're already here mulling around. they're fully aware of this. you know what james duryea. crab is a different tax bracket for me. what's wrong with thanksgiving dinner table wrong about that went wrong with snow and kravis cues really expensive and not filling and it's a lot of work. >> but we're complaining well. but an francisco. it's a generations. we like our crab
