FAIRFIELD — Eastbound Interstate 80 near the truck scales will be closed from midnight to 4 a.m. Tuesday.
The closure will start just east of the exit to eastbound Highway 12 leading toward Suisun City and Rio Vista. It will extend east to near Abernathy Road.
Workers will be removing overhead signs that are outdated because of reconfigurations associated with the truck scales project, state Department of Transportation spokesman Vince Jacala said. A renovated trucks scales, new ramps and new Highway 12 entrance opened earlier this year.
The detour will take traffic on Highway 12 east to Chadbourne Road to the Abernathy Road onramp back to I-80. Motorists will have help figuring out this alternate route.
“We’re going to have the California Highway Patrol out there,” Jacala said. “We’re going to have flaggers out there.”
