Sacramento – Caltrans is continuing with overnight lane closures this week for the U.S. Highway 50 Corridor Enhancement “Fix50” Project lasting into the early morning hours. 

Crews have begun removing all striping and pavement markers on the WX section of eastbound US-50 to push traffic to the north side (far left) and work on the south side (far right and shoulder) of the highway. This work will continue through March 18. Once the shift is completed, traffic will remain in this configuration through July.
