Get ready for some myth-busting. Contrary to popular belief, the worst day to fly is NOT the day before Thanksgiving. The three worst days to fly in 2013, according to operations data from the FAA, were the three Thursdays after the Fourth of July in the following order, starting with the busiest: July 18, 25 and 11. The day before Thanksgiving ranked 27th.
The FOURTH worst day to fly in 2013 was the Friday before Christmas, which this year is this Friday, December 19. With so many people flying, expect check-in to take longer and security lines to be longer, and again, leave plenty of time to get to the airport. Use the Caltrans QuickMap to get real-time traffic info and plan your route so you don't miss your flight. Better yet, take transit. Happy travels!
* Caltrans has a Division of Aeronautics that, among many other functions, permits and inspects heliports and is involved in aviation system planning. Learn more about it here.

To re-open the highway, repair crews will unpin and remove concrete barriers (K-rails) to remove mud and debris trapped in the debris basins. Debris and mud will spill across the highway when the K-rails are removed. Crews will then clear drain inlets and wash away mud on the highway.
