Traffic jam begins as 50K students go back to school

The summer break ends today for many students and that means more drivers on the road.

UH students head back to school Monday and many private schools also start their new school year this week.

The Department of Transportation estimates more than 50,000 students will go back to school this week.

To help beat the school jam, the DOT is putting many daytime road projects on hold this week.

The extra lane added from the H-1 Freeway rehab project should help alleviate some traffic congestion.
