ALAMEDA COUNTY – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is planning a scheduled night time closure of southbound lanes on I-880 starting Wednesday night, September 30, from 9:00 PM to 5:00 AM and continuing nightly until Wednesday, October 7.
The closures will include multiple I-880 southbound lanes beginning in Oakland at 98th Avenue, and extending south in San Leandro to Marina Boulevard; closure may include off-ramps and on-ramps.
The scheduled closures will allow crews to successfully pave lanes in preparation of opening the newly extended I-880 HOV lane and ramps to and from Davis Street and Marina Boulevard in Alameda County.
Motorists are advised to expect delays and allow extra time for their commute. Please drive cautiously through the construction zone, leave a safe traveling distance between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead of you, and Slow for the Cone Zone.
