Long overdue are congratulations and gratitude to the crews who for the past several months have variably kept open two to three lanes eastbound and westbound in the bridge reconstruction zone of I-80.

Thanks to truckers who do not use the narrowed route, but use I-215.

No thanks to motorists and motorcyclists, including some police vehicles, that speed through that section.

Because of the reconstruction, all I-80 drivers will ultimately have a better road and bridge system.
