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

Guardrail repair on I-80 in Placer

The state Department of Transportation alerts motorists to expect delays on westbound Interstate 80 northeast of Colfax as work to repair damaged guardrails takes place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The right lane of Interstate 80 from Secret Town to just west of the Magra interchange will be closed for guardrail repairs and maintenance operations. Because there are only two lanes on that portion of Interstate 80, motorists are likely to experience traffic delays and are encouraged to plan for additional travel time through the area, Caltrans reports.

Coffee with law enforcers

Officers from the California Highway Patrol’s south Sacramento area and deputies from the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office invite residents to a gathering at 4 p.m. at Starbucks, 8240 Calvine Road, at Power Inn Road, Sacramento. Residents can voice concerns and meet law enforcement personnel in an informal, neutral space.

Ice cream to ice cream walk

The Sacramento Walking Sticks group invites residents to join in an Ice Cream Walk from 6 to 7 p.m. Wednesday. Pedestrians will travel from Vic’s Ice Cream shop, 3199 Riverside Blvd., to Gunther’s Ice Cream shop, 2801 Franklin Blvd. Participants are asked to choose a 3- or 6-mile route that’s flat and easy. A walk between the two creameries is also scheduled from 9 to 10 a.m. Thursday. Go to www.sacramentowalkingsticks.org for more information.
