Unsecured Load Blocks Traffic in Citrus Heights
An unsecured load caused a section of a house being transported by a tractor-trailer to crash onto a Citrus Heights roadway on September 17. The incident happened at around 3:11 in the afternoon while the driver was attempting to enter onto Interstate 80 close to Orlando Avenue and Auburn Boulevard, according to a report by a Caltrans official. The dropped load resulted in the closure of the southbound and northbound ramps between Riverside Avenue and Auburn Boulevard but did not affect traffic along the freeway. According to Caltrans, a tow truck was dispatched to the scene to move the 15,000 pound obstruction.
