Crews work to clear J Street after tree breaks and blocks all lanes
A massive tree has fallen across the intersection of J and 16th streets, blocking traffic early Monday morning.
The cause of the tree fall is unknown.
Sacramento police officers are at the scene to direct traffic, said police spokesman Sgt. Bryce Heinlein. No injuries have been reported.
Sacramento city crews are handling clean-up, but officials don’t know when the street will be cleared, Heinlein said.
As of 9:45 a.m., two city crews were still working to clear the area and evaluate the situation, according to city spokeswoman Marycon Young. By 11 a.m., the area had been cleared, Young said.
