FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WESTBOUND INTERSTATE 80 FAIRFIELD
Full Overnight Highway Closures Start June 20

SOLANO COUNTY – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and its project partner the Solano Transportation Authority (STA) are continuing 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. Demolition of the old overcrossing continues with full overnight highway closures on westbound I-80 starting Wednesday, June 20 with some ramp and connector closures starting June 13.
Eastbound I-80 and SB I-680 Ramp Closures- June 13, 14 and 15.
To ensure worker and public safety during the demolition, the eastbound I-80 onramp from Green Valley Road and the southbound I-680 connector from eastbound I-80 will be closed Monday, June 13, Tuesday, June 14 and Wednesday, June 15 starting each night at 10:00 PM until 4:00 AM the following mornings. Motorists should follow the detour signs.
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 11:00 PM each night until 5:00 AM the following mornings. Motorists will be detoured from westbound I-80 to the Suisun Valley Road exit, then westbound on Neitzel Road, then westbound on Business Center Drive, then southbound on Green Valley Road and enter westbound I-80 from Green Valley Road. Detours signs will be posted.
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 original scheduled to occur the night of June 10, 2016 has now been rescheduled to occur on the night of June 16, 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.
