Commuters who flew westbound past the Fix50 project on the W-X freeway face a harsh reality this afternoon: Commutes are two-way affairs.

The Bee has you covered. We'll have our live traffic map and live traffic cam back on the home page for you to check before you leave work. Our live Fix50 blog also continues through commute hours.

And we’re not abandoning you on Day Two. On Wednesday, will again feature its live traffic map and camera. We’ll fire up the blog again at 6 a.m. And if you want to get text alerts for the latest on road conditions today and tomorrow, sign up on our resource page:

Have a safe ride/walk/cycle home!
