7:35 am
before this drill is ready to go which leads to the question, what takes so long? >> the body of the machine doesn't take that long. we can get the body of the machine together in a couple of weeks. but there's a premen douse amount of computers and hydraulics that need to be installed and then tested. this machine was tested in our factory. it's it's all taken apart, we have to test it again. >> reporter: so here's other numbers for you. the subway system has a $1 moi 5 million price interesting. the. the subway system is scheduled and hopefully will be up and running. this operation is 24/7. but they can actually only shut down the street overnight to put the theses in. so -- the pieces in. so the piece we are looking at won't go in until tomorrow morning. the launch box is about a block away. we're gonna go down there to show you what it looks like

they are open. and they will not be allowed to fill the ranger or the maintenance jobs they currently have open. community programs will be cut atport chicago and at richmond's rosy site. 7:36. we continue our coverage of the boston marathon bombings. investigators say the two bombs used in last week's terrorist attack were triggered by long- range remote controlled devices designed for toy cars. that's a far more sophisticated system than earlier believed and it bolsters the theory, the older suspect received bomb making help during his trip to russia last year. the fbi still believes no foreign terrorist group was involved in the plot. one oakland neighborhood is seeing an increase in burglaries with the addition of new gourmet restaurants. police say there have been at least seven robberies around popular and busy park boulevard in the past week. restaurant workers carrying cash tips and patrons walking
7:38 am
to and from their vehicles have been targeted. they've approached on foot, bicycle or they've also used a vehicle to into the area or to leave the scene. >> police say they are examining surveillance video and will be recanvassing the neighborhood for clues. so far police say they don't know if the robberies are connected. 7:37. people who live in one south bay neighborhood are about to become the newest residents of the city of campbell. now, they live in an area known as the cam preian 36 -- cambrian 36 neighborhood between san jose and campbell. it's worded by union -- boredded by union avenue dashboarded by union -- it's boarded by union avenue. they are expecting to make the change of address official on
7:39 am
may 7th. let's check in with sal. see what's happening on the roads. >> getting a little bit more crowded around the bay, tori and dave, in general. although we haven't had a lot of crashes. certainly the traffic is beginning to slow down. if you are driving from the carquinez bridge through richmond and pinole. we have slower conditions driving through with traffic that's going to be a little bit slow as well as you get to the bay bridge toll plaza. there are no major problems here. it's backed up for about a 20- minute delay. it was lighter earlier. now it's filled in. also we're looking at the commute on the dumbarton and san mateo bridge. san mateo bridge showing slow traffic getting over to the peninsula. and 101/92 kind of a trouble spot with all of that slow traffic. if you want to avoid that, 280 is a good bet heading down south. let's go to steve. pretty good fog bank out there. not covering everywhere. there are some breaks in the clouds. more towards santa cruz bay and
7:40 am
the coastline. there's fog still monterey and a big fog bank goes north. this looks to be the coolest day. had the fog come up a couple of days ago. had went parallel to the coast. a little slow in southern california said, no, i will take care of that. it's lifted up 3,000, 4,000 feet. it has no problem flying over the coastal hills. 50s on the temperatures. oakland is 58. dave in crockett said it felt mild. but the breeze has been flying through parts of the area. fairfield had gusts of 33. they are all out of the west, most. so there is a sea breeze in place replacing the -- rear placing. overall, the gray skies and again that low that came in, weak as it may be gave some light rain into southern california. very, very cool for this time of year throughout much of the country. in fact, our record lows in
7:41 am
fayetteville, arkansas, 27. just got word, fourth coldest start ever. dallas is in the 50s. denver another cool day. at least it's not snowing. 48 in ukiah. 50s to southern california and then you find the 60s. they are held dune in check by that system. it's now moving into the four corners which will trigger more severe weather. for us you, windy at times. some areas stuck in the gray. temperatures will hard-pressed to warm up. marin county, to very, very low 70s. martinez 66. we go san jose at 70. 72 morgan hill. that's warmer than yesterday. i think they get more son a little bit. peninsula, san mateo, millbrae, burlingame, not much change. a lot of cloe clouds in pacifica and daly city. it does look warmer for thing
