(AP) -- Safety officials have fined the Bay Area Regional Transit for the deaths of two of its workers.
The Fix 50 project by Caltrans will repair a section of U.S. Highway 50 known as the W/X Viaduct. The portion carries six lanes of traffic over surface streets and other transportation infrastructure through Sacramento.
A lot more people are expected to keep their cars at home and take mass transit starting Tuesday due to construction on Highway 50.
