CHP stops pacing traffic on 99 between Franklin Road and Livingston as fog lifts a bit

The California Highway Patrol said it's no longer pacing traffice on Highway 99 just north of Merced at Franklin Road to Livingston at Hammat Avenue because dense fog has given way to visibility of 500 feet or more.

Earlier in the morning, when visibility was reported at 200 to 500 feet, CHP was pacing traffic on the highway in that location.
