The traffic scene near and around the collapsed MacArthur Maze section doesn’t seem to be seeing protracted or painful holdups, the Highway Patrol said this morning.

“They’ve got the closure in place and pretty much it’s been stabilized,” CHP Officer Scott Cakebread said in a phone call.

“Traffic is not too bad today. There’s about a normal backup. There doesn’t seem to be a holdup.”

Cakebread said that drivers near the collapse site are looking, but not slowing things down too much. He said he hadn’t gotten word from officers in the field or other callers saying traffic is backed up to a specific point.

He added that there wasn’t any word on the CHP’s plans to shift patrols in response to the likely afternoon-commute plans.
