FAIRFIELD — Drivers on Interstate 80 Monday evening into Tuesday morning will be dealing with lane closures as highway workers trim oleander bushes in the median between Vacaville and Dixon.
Weather permitting, the California Department of Transportation will be doing the work in preparation for an upcoming paving project on the east and westbound lanes between the two cities, according to a press release.
The No. 1 lane will be closed westbound between Curry and Midway roads from 7 p.m. Monday until 5 a.m. Tuesday.
Eastbound, the No. 1 lane, also between Midway and Curry roads, will be closed from 10 p.m. Monday until 6 a.m. Tuesday.
The Interstate 80 Vacaville-Dixon Rehabilitation project is set to begin in mid-April and finish in 2014. The project includes rehabilitation and paving of eight miles of interstate in both directions between Vacaville and Dixon plus ramp and shoulder work in northern Solano County.
The project completes the Pave 80 Project that involved paving the interstate from the Bay Area to the Nevada-California state line.
