RDOT to temporarily close Rockdale Industrial Boulevard railroad crossing
WRIGHTWOOD, CA - JULY 23: Traffic is detoured away from a business which closed as California Highway 138 got shut down to protect workers from road rage during a road-widening project on July 23, 2007 near Wrightwood, California, 50 miles northeast of Los Angeles. Before the closure, road workers received insults, death threats, BB gun shootings, and were the target of thrown objects from drivers angered by traffic delays during rush hour. The road is now shut down entirely until the project is finished, forcing 20,000 drivers per day into lengthy detours. (Photo by David McNew/Getty Images)
