If you spend any portion of your day commuting on Highway 65 through Rocklin and Roseville. Chances are you’re familiar with the increased amount of traffic congestion over the past several months. The city is working hard on lane expansion to solve traffic issues in the coming months and years. Still, as the saying goes – some things simply must get worse before they can get better.
Highway 65 Construction
In the current roadwork on Highway 65, drivers must navigate construction crews and machines, narrow lanes, additional signage, shorter on ramps, and increasingly tricky merging circumstances. On a highway that already sees thousands of commuters per day, these extra challenges require drivers to remain even more cautious at all times.
CalTrans Metering Times
As of Monday, April 8, 2019, CalTrans has administered extended metering times on existing Southbound 65 ramps to promote safer merging in the most congested areas. We hope this is the start of safer driving conditions for all, but our Ashley Injury Lawyers team would like to kindly remind drivers that this effort is just that – a start.
Unfortunately, we cannot control how others behave behind the wheel, so we encourage you to do your part to keep yourself and those around you safe. Drive extra carefully in these congested, construction-zoned areas, and pay close attention to drivers in front of, behind, and alongside you. Avoiding distractions as simple as using your cellphone, eating, reaching across or behind your seat, or adjusting the radio can be the difference between making it home safely or contributing to a dangerous accident.
