Pavement On Eastbound US 50 Buckles Causing Lane Closures And Delays

WEST SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Caltrans says a portion of the pavement near the Jefferson Exit of eastbound Highway 50 has buckled, causing emergency road repairs.

At 5:22 p.m. on Sunday, Caltrans tweeted that traffic was being held on the freeway due to “roadway issues.”

According to a Caltrans spokesman, CHP reported that the roadway was buckling in several lanes.  Crews responded and closed lanes 1-4.  Lane 5 was quickly opened to allow traffic to go through and Lane 4 was expected to reopen by 9 p.m. with lanes 1-3 expected to reopen by 4 a.m.

A CBS13 photographer snapped several pictures of the damage around 5:30 p.m. Sunday and traffic was backed up to the Enterprise Boulevard exit.

A Caltrans spokesman told CBS13 that the cause is under investigation but it may have been due to the hot temperatures in the region.
