Old Green Valley Road Overcrossing Demolition
Full Overnight Highway Closures-TWO WEEKS
Starts First Week of June 2016

SOLANO COUNTY – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and its project partner the Solano Transportation Authority (STA) will begin work to remove the old Green Valley Road overcrossing above eastbound and westbound Interstate-80 (I-80) in Fairfield as part of the I-80/I-680/SR-12 Interchange Project.

The old overcrossing was replaced by the new Green Valley Road/I-80 overcrossing which recently opened to limited northbound and southbound traffic. Demolition of the old overcrossing is tentatively scheduled to start Monday, June 6.

Eastbound I-80 and Southbound I-680 Ramp Closures-Two Days-June 6 and 7
To ensure worker and public safety during the demolition of the old overcrossing, the eastbound I-80 onramp from Green Valley Road and the southbound I-680 connector from eastbound I-80 will be closed Monday, June 6 and Tuesday, June 7 starting each night at 10:00 PM until 4:00 AM the following mornings. Motorists should follow the detour signs.

Eastbound I-80 Full Overnight Highway Closure-Starts June 8 until June 13
Starting Wednesday, June 8 until Monday, June 13, full overnight closures are scheduled on eastbound I-80 at the Green Valley Road exit. Eastbound I-80 closures are tentatively scheduled 11:00 PM until 5:00 AM the following mornings. Motorists will be detoured onto an adjacent I-80 connector road at I-80 and Green Valley Road and back onto eastbound I-80 near the Suisun Valley Road exit.

Westbound I-80 Full Overnight Highway Closure-Starts June 19 until June 24
Overnight closures on westbound I-80 are tentatively scheduled starting Sunday, June 19 until Friday, June 24 starting at 11:00PM each night until 5:00 AM the following mornings. Detours will be in effect.

This stage of work is part of Package 1 of the I-80/I-680/SR-12 Interchange Project. Package 1 constructs a new Green Valley Road above I-80 and a new elevated connector bridge from westbound I-80 to westbound SR-12. Construction started spring 2014 and is scheduled to be completed in late 2016. All work is weather permitting.

Additional Work
Motorists are advised to allow for extra time, watch for temporary detours and always drive with caution through the construction zone.

Businesses and residents near the construction zone may encounter noise related to the demolition of the old overcrossing.

Phone: (510) 286-5206

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

GREEN VALLEY ROAD-FAIRFIELD/INTERSTATE-80 OVERCROSSING
Ramps Reopened Ahead of Schedule
Watch for New Approach Lane Configurations

SOLANO COUNTY – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and its project partner the Solano Transportation Authority (STA) have reopened all the on and off-ramps at eastbound Interstate-80 (I-80) and Green Valley Road in the City of Fairfield in Solano County ahead of schedule.

The Green Valley Road off-ramp from eastbound I-80, the onramp from Green Valley Road onto eastbound I-80 and southbound I-680 were reopened at approximately 6:18 AM Monday, May 23.
The closure allowed crews to complete construction of a permanent roadway connection from the eastbound I-80 Green Valley Road off-ramp to the new Green Valley Road overcrossing above eastbound and westbound I-80. This is a major milestone in the construction of Package 1 of the I-80/I-680/SR-12 Interchange Project.

**Motorists are advised to drive with caution and watch for new traffic lanes and temporary traffic signal lights near the intersection of Green Valley Road and Business Center Drive.

**Starting Monday-May 23
New Lane Configuration on approaches to new Green Valley Road/I-80 Overcrossing
Starting Monday May 23, motorists are advised to watch for new lane configurations on southbound Green Valley Road and westbound Business Center Drive near the Green Valley Road/Business Center Drive intersection.

Southbound Green Valley Road
Motorists are advised that the existing middle traffic lane on southbound Green Valley Road just north of Business Center Drive will be closed until fall 2016. Two existing traffic lanes will remain open on southbound Green Valley Road.

Eastbound Business Center Drive
The existing far left lane of westbound Business Center Drive just east of Green Valley Road will be closed until fall 2016. Motorists traveling from eastbound Business Center Drive to southbound Green Valley Road will make their left turn from one of two remaining traffic lanes on eastbound Business Center Drive.

Project Benefits
With the completion of this weekend’s work, motorists are now able to exit eastbound I-80 at Green Valley Road again, and for the first time travel northbound and southbound on the new Green Valley Road overcrossing above I-80. The new overcrossing also includes new northbound and southbound traffic lanes, a new sidewalk, and a new bicycle lane.

Additional Work to Come
Motorists should expect delays through the construction zone, watch for temporary traffic lanes, temporary traffic signal lights and heavy equipment as additional project work continues.

Crews will now also begin permanently shifting all traffic onto the new Green Valley Road/I-80 overcrossing, demolishing the old Green Valley Road/I-80 overcrossing, and later this year begin shifting traffic on westbound I-80 in preparation of the completion of the new connector structure from westbound I-80 to westbound State Route 12 (SR-12).
