Caltrans crews work near Fairfield interchange

By From page A3 | June 28, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Various nighttime traffic controls connected with the Interstates 80 and 680 interchange project were scheduled to end at 5 a.m. Saturday.

The state Department of Transportation has launched the first phase of a multiphase plan to improve the interchange. That first phase includes renovating the Green Valley interchange and building new ramps leading from Interstate 80 to Highway 12.

As an initial step, Caltrans is to place concrete safety barriers on Green Valley Road and I-80. It intended to do so Friday night into Saturday morning. The agency gave little advance warning, releasing the following schedule on Friday morning:

  • Green Valley Road would have one-way traffic control between Lopes Road and Business Center Drive from midnight to 5 a.m. Saturday.
  • Eastbound I-80 connector to southbound Interstate 680 would be closed from 11 p.m. Friday until 8 a.m. Saturday.
  • Westbound I-80 connector to westbound Highway 12 would be closed from 11 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Saturday.
  • Southbound Green Valley Road onramp to westbound I-80 would be closed from 11 p.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Saturday.
  • Northbound Green Valley Road/southbound Lopes Road onramp to eastbound I-80 would be closed from 10 p.m. Friday to 7 a.m. Saturday.

Caltrans intended to post detour signs. Go to www.dot.ca.gov/dist4/projects/solano8068012 to see the project website.
