UPDATED: Three construction workers were injured late this morning when a semi-truck hit a piece of lumber sticking out in traffic.
Sacramento's "Fix 50" construction project has entered day two, and traffic is slow in the area where CalTrans is repairing and resurfacing the elevated section of highway 50. Some eastbound lanes are closed.
The big "Fix 50" project beganTuesday morning in Sacramento and that means lane closures and likely congestion. Capital Public Radio's Bob Moffitt was out covering the impact on the morning commute.
Insight guest host Pamela Wu speaks with representatives of both Caltrans and the City of Sacramento about the Fix 50 project.
During the Fix50 highway construction project, the City of Sacramento will be trying to minimize congestion throughout the city. The City says fewer drivers on the road is the most important thing that can be done to reduce traffic on city streets.
