Comment from a reader: I drove up Friday and returned yesterday. On Friday it took me 100 minutes to get to Mimosa to play golf; an extra 35-40 minutes. Coming back yesterday it was about the same. It is a slow go from SCTEX to Clark with trucks hauling lahar, pot holes and road works that have closed one lane between the bridge and Friendship turn off. The article below says they are going to put in a bailey bridge as a temporary replacement for light vehicles. I hope they do, as a permanent fix won't be quick and it is not a fun drive now.
