FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Interstate-80/Interstate-680/Highway 12 Interchange Project-Fairfield
Green Valley Road/I-80 Overcrossing
Heavy Construction-Expect Delays
SOLANO COUNTY – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), and its project partner the Solano Transportation Authority (STA) are continuing work on the Interstate-80/Interstate-680/Highway 12 Interchange Project in Fairfield.
Crews are now working on dirt excavation near the Green Valley Road/Interstate-80 (I-80) overcrossing. The work requires intermittent daytime lane closures on the overcrossing as heavy equipment enters and exits the construction site. Motorists should watch for flaggers and expect delays.
Construction in this area is expected to be ongoing for the next 6-12 months. During heavy construction periods, motorists should also consider using alternate routes.
Southbound Green Valley Road/Lopes Road (I-80 overcrossing)
Motorists heading southbound on Green Valley Road/Lopes Road are advised to use eastbound Business Center Drive, to southbound Suisun Valley Road, then southbound on Central Way, then eastbound on Old Cordelia Road, then southbound on Lopes Road.
I-80/I-680/Highway-12 Project Improvements:
The work which started in June is part 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.
