Delays on Hwy 50

Travelers heading to Sacramento from the Lake Tahoe area may experience slight delays Thursday and Friday, the California Department of Transportation reported.

Crews will clean ditches and trim brush on U.S. Highway 50, resulting in lane closures and delays of five to 10 minutes from west of Ice House Road to west of Twin Bridges. Work is scheduled from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Thursday and from 7:30 a.m. to noon Friday.

Crews will also work 6 a.m. to noon Friday between Riverton and Twelve Bridges, installing rumble strips to wake up sleepy and inattentive drivers. Traffic in both directions could be delayed up to 10 minutes.
