Q: I live in North Sacramento. If I drive down to south Sacramento and Elk Grove on Highway 99, will that be affected by the Fix 50 project? -- Wally Chan, Sacramento

A: The effect on the Capital City Freeway, or Business 80, and Highway 99 traffic will depend on the time of day. Traffic backups due to the work on Highway 50 are more likely during commute hours. Some drivers who normally would travel the affected W-X portion of Business 80 are altering their routes, adding to traffic on nearby freeways and surface streets. It’s best to allot yourself additional time, just in case.
