FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Interstate-80/Interstate-680/Highway 12 Interchange Project-Fairfield
One-Way Traffic Controls on Green Valley Road near I-80
Friday, July 11 and Saturday, July 12
SOLANO COUNTY – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will place additional safety barriers on Green Valley Road near Interstate 80 (I-80) as part of
the I-80/I-680/Highway 12 Interchange Project in Fairfield.
The work will require one-way traffic controls at the following locations:
Green Valley Road (one-way traffic controls):
One-way traffic controls will be in effect on Green Valley Road between Lopes Road and Business Center Drive starting Friday, July 11 at 8 p.m. until 4 a.m. on Saturday, July 12.
During one-way traffic controls, crews will alternate closures on northbound and southbound Green Valley Road to allow one-lane of traffic to proceed at a time. One lane of traffic will remain open at all times.
Motorists should also watch for various overnight ramp closures with detours in the construction zone near the Green Valley Road exit and I-80.
I-80/I-680/Highway-12 Project Improvements:
The work is in preparation of the first construction package of the I-80/I-680/Highway-12 Interchange project. During this first phase, a new Green Valley Road overcrossing will be constructed above I-80 about 200 feet east of the existing overcrossing. The new overcrossing will have twice the number of lanes (4) as the existing overcrossing (2), along with a new on ramp to westbound I-80/Highway-12. The connector ramp from westbound I-80 to Highway-12 also will be widened from one lane to two lanes.
Please slow for flaggers and allow for extra travel time. All work is weather permitting.
