Q: I will be going to the airport on Thursday, May 14th. Will there be any problem from Highway 50 to Interstate 5 towards the airport? - Maria Brooks, Shingle Springs

A: You probably will be fine, because the full-time work on the westbound lanes doesn’t start until May 27. However, we should offer two small warnings. Caltrans has been conducting some temporary lane closures some nights on the westbound side of 50 downtown to get a head start on work for the full 24/7 closures on May 27. Closures have started as early as 8 p.m. Caltrans has kept a couple lanes closed until 5 a.m. Caltrans also soon will do some night lane closures for work on Interstate 5 downtown. Caltrans officials haven’t disclosed yet when they plan to start those, but they said they plan to reopen all lanes on I-5 each morning in time for the commute.
