Observation Date / Time

CalTrans is doing major reconstruction of the 101 'King City Bridge' over the Salinas River.  The roadway over the river has been reduced to one lane in each direction and surrounded by Jersey Barriers with speed restricted (normal freeway speeds at this point have reduced).  I was heading northbound. Skunk carcass was just as you come out of these restrictions and the freeway 'opens up'.
