Eastbound I-80 Detour in Fairfield:
During the overnight highway closure, exits to highway 12 eastbound and Abernathy Road will not be accessible. Eastbound I-80 motorists will be detoured onto the new eastbound Truck Scale Exit. From the Truck Scale, there are signs which will direct motorists to I-80 eastbound, Highway 12 eastbound or the Chadbourne Road exit.
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.
