Caltrans: No need to expand Fix50 work

Q: Why are they not going to pave eastbound 50 connecting to Business 80 and 99 which need major repair? This would be the best time and save a lot of money. Caltrans should think about it. – Debra Coffman, Elk Grove.

A: Your point is a good one about trying to get as much work done as possible during major lane closures. Caltrans local head Jody Jones checked with her road engineers and they report, however, that those connector ramps are in good condition and don’t need repaving. They also said the portion of the W-X just west of the Fix50 rehab area is in good condition.
