Watt Ave at US-50 Interchange Project

Intermittent Overnight Ramp Closures: July 22 to 26, 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.
Sacramento, CA. July 22, 2014 – The Sacramento County Department of Transportation is alerting motorists that on the evenings of July 22 to 26, there will be intermittent overnight closures for all Watt Avenue at US-50 Interchange off-ramps and on-ramps. Closure and detour information is listed below:
Nights of July 22 to 26:
  • All Off-Ramps and On-Ramps: From 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night, there will be intermittent closures of each interchange off-ramp and on-ramp. Closure periods for each ramp will last from 2 to 4 hours.  Once work on a specific ramp is completed, the ramp will be re-opened to motorists.  No two on-ramps in the same direction will be closed at the same time. 

           Detour: Detours will be in place to guide motorists to the best alternative for their destinations north or south on Watt Avenue.

Expect possible 5 to 10 minute delays during the detour period.  

Overnight Project Work: Project work during closure periods will include traffic and ramp metering signal work. 

Completed Project: The completed project will provide a reduction in overall delay through the interchange; much easier and safer access on and off the freeway for all motorists; dedicated transit facilities; and, improved access and safety for bicyclists and pedestrians. It is anticipated that the project will be completed by late-summer 2014.

Patience is Appreciated: The patience and cooperation of the traveling public is appreciated as work to construct the interchange project continues.
