I-5 Now Scheduled To Re-Open Thursday

Heat Forces Delay

Caltrans is advising motorists the completion of stage three of the Fix I-5 project in downtown Sacramento, originally scheduled for tomorrow has now been moved to Thursday.

The fourth and final stage of the project, which is the full closure of northbound I-5 through downtown Sacramento, is now scheduled to begin Friday, July 18 at 8 p.m. The re-opening of those northbound lanes is now scheduled for Monday, July 28 by 5 a.m.

The Sacramento area’s recent heat wave dramatically reduced work time for crews placing the polyester-based concrete onto the roadway. That polyester concrete will serve as the final driving surface for the rebuilt lanes of I-5’s Boat Section between L and S Streets in downtown Sacramento.

Due to extremely high temperatures, paving crews lost valuable work time in each day of the stage. For more information please visit www.fixI5.com.
