Today in Sacramento: Here’s what you need to know for Saturday

Repair work to cause delays on Highway 50

Caltrans is alerting motorists about emergency maintenance repair work at the Highway 50 and Interstate 5 connector on Saturday near downtown Sacramento. Crews will be repairing a crash cushion, guardrail, traffic signs and doing storm water and landscape work that will require multiple ramps and exits to be closed for about eight hours, weather permitting. At least 20-minute traffic delays are expected. Motorists are urged to choose an alternate route to avoid these delays, and to expect extended travel times.

Film tells story of Tule Lake resisters

Japanese Americans During WWII” led by a docent who was formerly interned. The program starts at noon at 1020 O St.

Crocker offers retro prom night

The Crocker Art Museum is giving Sacramentans a chance to relive proms from years past and get it right this time. Prom 2017 is a ’90s-themed night of spiked punch, wallflowers and cummerbunds with arms-length-apart dancing, a VIP lounge and a chance to replace embarrassing prom photos from years past. The museum asks guests to “dig out that too-small tuxedo and iridescent dress” and dance to DJ Epik and Dog Rifle at the inaugural fundraiser supporting community arts engagement. The event begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are $75 for singles and $130 for couples.
