More on I-5

CD’s reminder post about the I-5 Boat Section Repair reminded me that I came across a great informational site yesterday. Caltrans has put up a site called and it will have the latest news and updates regarding getting around the impacted area. Oh, and it will have live traffic cams for the truly curious.

One of the cool features on the site is a photo of the section of I-5 that flooded in 1980. It is a surreal glimpse of history. In 1996 I recall a (joking?) conversation with family that the I-5 would stop the Sacramento river from flooding downtown if it breached its banks. You can see it in action for yourself on the website.

Meanwhile, Bike Commute month is coming up, and that’s always a good commute option–as long as you don’t have to ride on Freeport Boulevard and take your life in your hands.
