FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Eastbound I-80 Connector to Southbound I-680-Fairfield
Overnight Closure – Continues Nighttime Thursday, August 13
SOLANO COUNTY – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and the Solano Transportation Authority (STA) are continuing work on the Interstate-80/Interstate-680/State Route-12 (I-80/I-680/SR-12) Interchange Project in Fairfield.
On Monday, August 10 crews began installing five giant girders at the I-80/I-680 interchange. The girders will form the main horizontal support for the new Green Valley Road overcrossing above the I-680 connector. Crews are now continuing with bridge-deck installation work related to the overcrossing.
Eastbound I-80 to southbound I-680-Overnight Connector Closure
To ensure worker and public safety, the eastbound I-80 connector to southbound I-680 closures will will be closed starting Thursday, August 13 at 9:00 PM until Friday, August 14 at 5:00 AM.
During the closure, the following detour will be in effect: Motorists will be detoured onto southbound Lopes Road, then left on Gold Hill Road, then enter southbound I-680 from Gold Hill Road. Detour signs will be posted.
Motorists should expect delays. All work is weather permitting.
Please remember to #BeWorkZoneAlert
I-80/I-680/Highway-12 Project Improvements:
A new Green Valley Road overcrossing is being constructed just east of the existing overcrossing. It will have twice the number of lanes (4) as the existing overcrossing (2), along with a new on ramp to westbound I-80/SR-12. The connector ramp from westbound I-80 to westbound SR-12 also will be widened from one to two lanes.
