880/92: And they’re off …

Today is officially the first day of what will be a long, complicated and expensive project to reconstruct the interchange of Interstate 880 and Route 92.

So from now until February 2011, commuters can expect more hassles than usual at the infamously clogged junction.

In the end, though, the route is supposed to be more efficient.

Today we asked Caltrans spokesman Steve Williams to keep us updated on progress and let us know in advance if there are to be lane changes or other commuting obstacles.
