Pavement Repair Closures Aug. 14-19 WB SR-37 between Vallejo & SR-121

Date: July 29, 2022
District: Four – Oakland
Contact: Pedro Quintana
Phone: (510) 867-6028
Email:  Pedro.Quintana@dot.ca.gov

 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Night Closures of Westbound State Route 37 between Vallejo
And State Route 121 for Pavement Repairs
Closures occur 8:00 PM – 4:00 AM, Sunday, August, 14 – Friday, August 19

SOLANO COUNTY – As part of a pavement rehabilitation project, Caltrans will close westbound State Route 37 (SR-37) between Walnut Avenue in Vallejo and State Route 121 (SR-121) at Sears Point in Sonoma County for five consecutive nights beginning Sunday, August 14. from 8:00 PM – 4:00 AM. Work will conclude by 4:00 AM, Friday, August 19, 2022.

The eight-hour nightly closures will allow workers to repair deteriorated pavement and shoulders on a six-mile stretch of westbound SR-37 between Walnut Avenue and Skaggs Island Road.

Eastbound SR-37 will not be affected.

During the closures, the ramp from Walnut Avenue/Railroad Avenue interchange leading to westbound SR-37 will be closed; however, the remaining ramps will stay open.

The closure will not affect traffic traveling on SR-121 to eastbound or westbound SR-37.

Traffic that would be traveling on westbound SR-37 during the closure will detour to northbound SR-29, then connect to westbound SR-12, and finally take SR-121 to connect to westbound SR-37. (See detour map.)

Due to its location atop marshy soil, Caltrans monitors pavement conditions on SR-37, keeping an eye out for cracking and potholes that might portend future problems.

After a recent assessment, Caltrans determined that a pavement rehabilitation project should occur before the wet weather arrives this fall, causing further deterioration and making repairs more difficult. SB-1 funds will be used to make these necessary road repairs.

Solano Countywide Active Transportation Plan – Projects List Amendment 2022

The Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) serves as STA’s primary long range planning document that guides and prioritizes the STA’s investments in transportation. An element of the CTP is the Active Transportation Element, which guides STA’s investment in bike and pedestrian related projects and programs. The STA Board adopted the Solano ATP in April of 2020.

In May 2022, the STA amended the original plan to include additional new projects submitted by each individual jurisdiction. There were 39 new projects in total added to the ATP – included as Attachment A. Additionally, the amendment adds the countywide SR2S projects list to the ATP projects list, establishing consistency between both documents.

This ATP amendment was adopted by the STA Board at their meeting on Wednesday, May 11, 2022.
