6:34 am
just fine. still watching that emergency construction on the delaware memorial bridge. two right lanes are open heading into delaware this morning. yesterday we only had one, so we may see a little bit of relief this morning. it may be a little better, but still plan on being stuck for a little bit. get out the door early. >> all right. thank you, jessica. that emergency construction on the delaware memorial bridge that jessica was just talking about is expected to cause backups again today. >> crews are working to fix cables on the suspension bridge. nbc 10's pamela osborne is in pensville, salem county, where we're already starting to see some backup there. bring us up to speed, pam. >> reporter: tracy, vai, good morning to you. what we're seeing right now is an increase in the amount of cars on the road. you can see things are moving pretty smoothly at the moment. there is a point where you get out there a little in the distance where you can see police flashing lights. some of those restrictions taking place. i want to give you a look overhead.
6:35 am
this is sky force 10 chopper video showing you the conditions that we're seeing right now. again, things moving pretty smoothly at the moment. quite different from what we saw yesterday. you didn't even have to be on the delaware memorial bridge to get tied up in some of the traffic there. side streets and on-ramps leading up to the bridge were gridlocked on the new jersey side heading into delaware as traffic was restricted. as jessica said, one lane yesterday. some of the drivers we spoke to said they were stuck for hours. >> catastrophe. >> horrible. >> madness. >> one hour, like 300 yards. >> gave no indication of the kind of time that it would take to even come this distance. i'm a little aggravated about that. >> reporter: well, now you have a bit of a heads up today. this morning, only two lanes will be open. here is why. crews went to make a repair on a vertical suspension. while they were doing that, they discovered there were a couple other ropes that were
6:36 am
compromised and in need of immediate attention. so not the kind of thing you want to put off. >> over 200 cables on each bridge. we're talking about three cables. for us to be able to do this in an efficient manner, we have to limit the weight on the bridge so we can address the cables. >> reporter: and if you're traveling the delaware memorial bridge, keep in mind the two left lanes will be closed, and the speed limit is 35 miles per hour. it's really important that you want to follow those reduced speeds because this is what is going on around you. you may not be able to see the work being done from on the bridge, but it is happening, and it's happening in some tricky spots. workers say they're moving as quickly as possible. also keep in mind if you're going southbound, you may see some delays as well. >> some technical issues there.
6:37 am
the flyers finally winning at home, keeping alive their quest for the cup. game five will be in washington tomorrow night. a scary moment for forward scott laughton, who fell after he was checked last night, slammed his head up against the boards right there. the team says he spent the night at jefferson hospital for precautionary reasons. this afternoon at the wells fargo center, players, alumni, and fans will honor founder ed snyder, who died last week. nbc 10 will air the service beginning live at 1:00. and the eagles now have the second pick in the nfl draft. pretty amazing. >> and the team appears to be looking for a new franchise quarterback. the eagles announced the trade with the cleveland browns yesterday. they gave up several draft picks to get that second overall pick. quarterback sam bradford is still their starter, but the trade suggests the team is setting their sights on north dakota state quarterback carson wentz. many experts think he's the best quarterback in the draft. speaking of next week's draft,

6:39 am
low 60s by 11:00, then 70 degrees at 3:00 this afternoon. that's a 14-mile-an-hour wind blowing this afternoon. for the lehigh valley, the temperatures will be climbing there too. a little cooler, 38 degrees right now. 53 degrees at 9:00. by 5:00 this afternoon, 71 degrees. that's when we'll see those southwesterly winds continuing. some of the coldest temperatures this morning have been in south jersey. now 35 degrees, clear skies, calm conditions, and that's when the temperatures really fall. look at the wind kicking in by 1:00 in the afternoon. that's a 15-mile-an-hour wind blowing in south jersey. we'll see that also at the jersey shore, where the temperatures will be running a little cooler into the 60s this afternoon with those winds gusting to possibly 30 miles an hour this afternoon. for delaware, sunshine to start with, and it's cool to start with. not really cold this morning. 44 degrees. the wind at 11 miles an hour. at 11:00 this morning, that's a 16-mile-an-hour wind blowing

through the afternoon to push temperatures in the low 70s. even though we'll get some scattered clouds at times, it'll stay dry today. tomorrow, a different story. futurecast with the timing of the much-needed rainfall when i'm back in ten minutes. 20 minutes before 7:00. we continue to focus on that situation at the delaware memorial bridge. >> jessica boyington has been keeping her eye on it. >> you don't want to be stuck in a mess like happened yesterday. yesterday we had about 2 1/2-hour delays behind this scene, heading into delaware from new jersey. so we had big backups on to 295 and the new jersey turnpike. right now we're not seeing those delays yet. we are starting to see, of course, rush hour beginning to get under way. we are seeing more cars getting out the door. the good thing is that two lanes are now open from new jersey into delaware. yesterday we only had one lane
6:41 am
open. we saw major, major jam-ups as well. we also have construction on the new jersey turnpike right around exit 1 at route 40. that's going to tie you up as well. you can take 95 and head southbound into delaware as well. this is the garden state parkway. we're looking around summer's point coming out of the toll plaza. we are seeing some construction. down to one lane. you can see they have cones in place through this construction zone. a sign right over here that is flashing and making cars merge over to the left-hand side. >> all right, jessica. thanks. 6:41, 46 degrees outside. hail to the queen. >> a big birthday today for queen elizabeth. we'll tell you how she's celebrating. plus -- ♪ -- yeah, the queen of soul. sing it, aretha. we're coming back to the area
6:42 am
for popular music festival. when you can get tickets. that triggered the financial meltdown -- goldman sachs. just settled with authorities for their part in the crisis that put seven million out of work and millions out of their homes. how does wall street get away with it? millions in campaign contributions and speaking fees. our economy works for wall street because it's rigged by wall street. and that's the problem. as long as washington is bought and paid for, we can't build an economy that works for people.
