Sacramento, CA October 21, 2014 – The Sacramento County Department of Transportation is alerting motorists that on the evenings of October 21 to 23, there will be overnight ramp and lane closures at the locations listed below:    

  • Interchange Off-Ramps and On-Ramps: From 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night, there will be intermittent closures of all interchange off-ramps and on-ramps.  Closure periods for each ramp will last from 2 to 4 hours.  Once work near a specific ramp is completed, the ramp will be re-opened to motorists. 
  • Detours: Detours will be in place to guide motorists through the project area.

Project Work: Project work during closure periods includes roadway lane striping and installation of roadway signage, ramp metering poles and lighting.  

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 in November 2014.

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