Expect the traffic to be busy all weekend, with better travel before 9:00 am and after 11:00 pm PST. There will likely be lots of back-ups, especially by the construction zones, but more on the Northbound side. Expect longer travel times on Sunday as the paving starts. 

Remember, the major problem of traffic stoppage and congestion is the lack of drivers utilizing the zipper method of merging. Please be careful, respectful, and considerate of others when merging and traveling. Drive the posted speed limits and travel safely!
