WESTBOUND and EASTBOUND-INTERSTATE-80-FAIRFIELD
Full Overnight Highway Closures-TWO WEEKS
Start First Week of June 2016
SOLANO COUNTY – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and its project partner the Solano Transportation Authority (STA) will begin work to remove the old Green Valley Road overcrossing above eastbound and westbound Interstate-80 (I-80) in Fairfield as part of the I-80/I-680/SR-12 Interchange Project.
The old overcrossing was recently replaced by the new Green Valley Road/I-80 overcrossing which recently opened to limited northbound and southbound traffic. Demolition of the old overcrossing is scheduled to start Monday, June 6 with full overnight highway closures on eastbound I-80 now scheduled to start Wednesday, June 8.
Eastbound I-80 and SB I-680 Ramp Closures-Four Nights-June 6 and 7, June 13 and 14
To ensure worker and public safety during the demolition of the old overcrossing, the eastbound I-80 onramp from Green Valley Road and the southbound I-680 connector from eastbound I-80 will be closed Monday, June 6 and Tuesday, June 7 and again June 13 and June 14 starting each night at 10:00 PM until 4:00 AM the following mornings. Motorists should follow the detour signs.
Eastbound I-80 Full Overnight Highway Closure-Starts June 8 until June 11
Starting Wednesday, June 8 until Saturday, June 11, full overnight closures are scheduled on eastbound I-80 at the Green Valley Road exit. Eastbound I-80 closures are scheduled starting at 11:00 PM until 5:00 AM the following mornings. Motorists will be detoured onto an adjacent I-80 connector road at I-80 and Green Valley Road and back to I-80 near the Suisun Valley Road exit.
Westbound I-80 Full Overnight Highway Closure-Starts June 20 until June 24
Overnight closures on westbound I-80 are scheduled starting Monday, June 20 until Friday, June 24 starting at 11:00PM each night until 5:00 AM the following mornings. Detours will be in effect.
Temporary Lane Configuration-Westbound I-80 to Westbound SR-12
Motorists are also advised to watch for a temporary lane configuration approaching the westbound I-80 to westbound State Route 12 (SR-12) connector. Crews will shift the westbound I-80 approach lane to westbound SR-12 slightly to the east as work continues on the new westbound
I-80/SR-12 connector. The temporary shift is scheduled to occur the night of June 10, 2016.
Motorists are advised to allow for extra time, watch for temporary detours and always drive with caution through the construction zone.
Businesses and residents near the construction zone may encounter noise related to the demolition of the old overcrossing.
This stage of work is part of Package 1 of the I-80/I-680/SR-12 Interchange Project. Package 1 constructs a new Green Valley Road above I-80 and a new elevated connector bridge from westbound I-80 to westbound SR-12. Construction started spring 2014 and is scheduled to be completed spring 2017. All work is weather permitting.
