Night closures possible at Merchant Street ramp

By From page A4 | April 18, 2014

VACAVILLE — Nighttime motorists during May could find the westbound Interstate 80 onramp from Merchant Street closed at times.

The state Department of Transportation is doing work there in connection with its I-80 metering light program. That will involve relocating a natural gas pipeline at the Merchant Street onramp, as well as installing the metering light and repaving the road, a Caltrans press release said.

Caltrans will contact the public once additional details are available about overnight ramp closures. Work at the Merchant Street onramp is to be completed no later than mid-June, the press release said.

    Metering lights? Are you crazy?? It's just more Agenda 21 creeping into your lives. Councilman Hunt knows about Agenda 21; he commented during a recorded City Council meeting how his house is so close to his neighbors that he can hear them bathing. That, my friends, is Agenda 21 stack-n-pack housing.
