Q: Will the 34th Street exit be closed at any time? – Melinda Breight, Rocklin

A: No. In fact, that’s turned out to be a pretty important, and at times congested, exit the last few days. With the eastbound ramps to Highway 99 and Business 80 closed, some drivers are taking the next exit ramp down the line – 34th Street – and using it to head north or south on city streets to get to 80 or 99.

Other drivers were doing something worse Monday morning. They were taking the 59th Street exit, then making an illegal u-turn from the off-ramp directly onto the on-ramp westbound. The CHP was alerted and sent an officer out there to stop cars from making that maneuver.
