Modifying Watt/50 Signals & Lanes for Traffic Flow

Modifying Watt/50 Signals & Lanes for Traffic Flow

The Sacramento County Department of Transportation (SACDOT) is making changes to the lanes and signal timing to improve traffic flow as construction moves forward on the Watt Avenue at US-50 interchange. This is an active construction zone with 90,000 cars per day driving through the site, and at times, construction activities will lead to traffic delays.

The recent reconfiguration of US-50 off-ramps and the installation of new traffic signals on Watt Avenue caused an increase in congestion throughout the interchange last Monday. To improve the flow of vehicles, additional lanes on Watt Avenue were opened up to traffic and timing adjustments were made to the traffic signals. These changes have improved traffic conditions such that the congestion and delay problems experienced on Monday have been solved and traffic conditions have returned to normal.

Railroad Museum Celebrates “Diesels & Dads”On Father’s Day Weekend

Railroad Museum Celebrates “Diesels & Dads”On Father’s Day Weekend

California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum are gearing up to celebrate “Diesels and Dads” on Father’s Day weekend – June 15 & 16 -- by operating two visually-exciting and gracefully-styled diesel locomotives as part of the popular weekend excursion train rides on the Museum’s Sacramento Southern Railroad.  These brightly painted diesels -- Western Pacific No. 913 and Southern Pacific “Daylight” No. 6051 -- will pull the excursion trains both Saturday and Sunday on Father’s Day weekend.   These eye-catching and classic streamlined locomotives are representative of the so-called “First Generation” of diesel-electric locomotives which replaced steam engines all across American during the 1940s and 1950s.
