FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Eastbound Interstate 80 near Eastbound Highway 12 Interchange Full Overnight Closure on I-80, Tuesday, October 29th
SOLANO COUNTY – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will remove an existing obsolete overhead sign on eastbound Interstate 80 in Fairfield, just east of the eastbound Highway 12 exit.
To ensure worker and public safety, a full overnight highway closure is scheduled on Tuesday, October 29th at 12:01 a.m. until 4 a.m., on eastbound I-80 in Fairfield, just east of the eastbound I-80 exit to eastbound Highway 12.
The old sign needs to be replaced with new updated signs coinciding with the recent opening of the new I-80 eastbound Cordelia Truck Scales and new I-80/Highway 12 interchange configuration.
Eastbound I-80 Detour in Fairfield:
During the overnight highway closure, eastbound I-80 motorists will be detoured onto eastbound Highway 12 exit, then to Chadbourne Road exit, then required to turn left (northeast) onto Abernathy Road. Motorists can re-enter eastbound I-80 from Abernathy Road.
The California Highway Patrol (CHP) and flaggers will help direct motorists. Caltrans will also install changeable message signs. Motorists should allow for extra travel time.
All work is weather permitting.
Caltrans appreciates your patience as we work to maintain and improve the highways.
