Caltrans is planning a major rebuild of the MacArthur Maze, the convergence of three major highways: 580, 880 and 80, near the toll plaza on the east side of the Bay Bridge. The new construction would increase the amount of clearance for trucks on overpasses, but could cause shutdowns on an already jam-packed thoroughfare. Forum talks about Caltrans' proposals for the rebuild and what it could mean for commuters in the short and long term.
