Union Pacific Says Section of Road Between Davis and Yolo Causeway Too Dangerous, Wants to Shut it Down
DAVIS -- A favorite shortcut around 1-80 between Davis and the Yolo Causeway may be off limits if Union Pacific Railroad has its way. They say it is too dangerous where the road crosses the tracks and has petitioned the Public Utilities Commission to close that section of road. The section of Road 32A that parallels Interstate 80 just east of Davis can get busy during commute hours. Motorists use the frontage road to avoid interstate gridlock.
