FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Interstate 80-Vacaville-Dixon Rehabilitation Project
Overnight Concrete Work Starts
SOLANO COUNTY- The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will begin cracking sections of concrete on eastbound and westbound Interstate 80 between Vacaville and Dixon starting Wednesday, June 5th. The work is part of the I-80 Vacaville-Dixon Rehabilitation Project. The process will allow crews to repave the old I-80 roadway allowing for a safer and smoother drive.
The work will require overnight cracking of concrete pavement with a mechanical hammer near rural areas but may also affect some residents and businesses along I-80 in Dixon and Vacaville. Construction noise will be unavoidable; however, it will be kept within approved construction noise levels. Overnight lane closures will be required.
The work is from the Meridian Road exit to the Highway 113 exit along eastbound and westbound I-80 in Solano County.
Overnight Work Schedule:
Work on eastbound I-80 is scheduled to start Wednesday, June 5th until Wednesday, June 12th each night starting at 10 p.m. until 6 a.m. the following mornings, except for Sunday nights. The eastbound work is scheduled for completion the morning of June 13th.
Work on westbound I-80 is scheduled to start Thursday, June 13th until Friday, June 19th each night starting at 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. the following mornings, except for Sunday nights. The westbound work is slated for completion June 20th at 5 a.m.
Over time, the roadway has deteriorated requiring complete rehabilitation. Night work will minimize traffic delays on I-80 during the busy morning and afternoon commute times. It will also allow crews to complete work without impacting daytime traffic.
