FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Interstate 680 - Rehabilitation Project
Between Fairfield and Benicia-Update for July 24 - July 31
SOLANO COUNTY – Caltrans is continuing construction of the Interstate 680 (I-680) Rehabilitation Project in Solano County which will rehabilitate and repave approximately 13 miles of northbound and southbound I-680 between Fairfield and Benicia.
Although no full highway closures are scheduled at this time, motorists may experience delays as crews work to repave I-680 with intermittent, overnight, alternating ramp and lane closures. Specific ramp closure and detour signs will be posted.
All work is weather permitting. The project will be completed as early as spring 2016.
I-680 Construction - Friday July 24 until Friday July 31
Starting Friday July 24 until Friday July 31 crews are scheduled to perform electrical work and median guardrail work on southbound and northbound I-680 nightly, Mondays through Fridays, between Fairfield and Benicia.
Paving crews will return in early August to complete the second phase of paving northbound and southbound I-680. Motorists should drive with caution as they may encounter some uneven sections of roadway as construction continues.
To ensure worker and public safety, one of the two traffic lanes on southbound
I-680 between Fairfield & Benicia will be closed nightly, Mondays through Fridays from 8:00 PM until 4:00 AM the following mornings.
Caltrans will also continue to close one of the two traffic lanes on northbound I-680 between Fairfield and Benicia nightly, Mondays through Fridays, from 10:00 PM until 6:00 AM the following mornings.
