Night Work Continues On I-80

THE NATOMAS BUZZ | @natomasbuzz

Caltrans is advising residents in the Natomas and Del Paso Heights area they may hear construction noise at night as the result of after hours work on an ongoing bus and carpool lane project.

Loud construction type noises may include back-up alarms, heavy equipment machinery operation, bright lights and industrial hammering operations.

Motorists will also likely be impacted as night work continues from the Sacramento-Yolo county line to the Watt Avenue overcrossing.

Caltrans officials said motorists can expect east and westbound lane and ramp closures Sunday through Saturday from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. resulting in delays of 10-15 minutes.

Motorists are also advised that various ramp closures and lane restrictions will take place during the project’s duration. The speed limit has been reduced from 65 to 55 miles per hour in the work zone during scheduled work hours.

This construction project is part of the $133.3 million project that will construct nearly 10 miles of bus and carpool lanes in both directions, repave the highway from West El Camino Avenue to Watt Avenue, and add approximately one mile of new auxiliary lanes from West El Camino Avenue to the Interstate 80 and Interstate 5 interchange.

The anticipated completion date is fall 2014.
