    That’s why I left Wednesday morning heading to Vegas and I left last night(Saturday) about 8pm. Wasn’t bad. Most of the traffic was in Baker. Just took me an extra 20 minutes extra for the trip home.

    Californians coming to Vegas to have everything they banned.
    Drink straw, law&order, friendly locals willing to work, safe streets.

    Isn't this pretty much the normal thing? It's always backed up to baker then clears a little.

    I've seen 11-12 hours trip times to LA before, on holiday weekends. That was back in early 2000's.

    They would have to widen that bridge just north of east Main in Barstow, and that’s not an overnight project. Regardless, there will be bottled necking in spotty areas.

    They could pave a 1000' wide highway all the up and those California idjits would still have a traffic jam.
