Your commute is going to become something of a nightmare this spring and summer on a portion of the freeway in downtown Sacramento.

Caltrans says work is going get started on the eastbound side of Highway 50 near downtown on May 2.  

That work on the elevated section of the freeway between 18th and 24th streets, sometimes called the W-X freeway, will include resurfacing the road, repairing cracking, and making it more earthquake resistant.  

Then from May 28 through June 17 they'll work on the westbound side of the W-X.

A lot of the work on the $46 million project will be done by Myers and Sons Construction, headed by Chris Myers. He's the son of well known contractor C.C. Meyers.
