SOLANO COUNTY – Caltrans will perform a 10-hour full Interstate 80 overnight closure near the City of Fairfield, as part of the Interstate 80/Interstate 680/State Route 12 Interchange Project, which will demolish the old existing eastbound SR-12 to eastbound I-80 connector bridge.

The full closure will begin at 11:00 PM on Saturday, Dec. 4, until 9:00 AM on Sunday, Dec. 5, 2021.
INTERSTATE 80 WB/EB DETOUR INFORMATION:
Westbound I-80 travelers: Motorists traveling westbound will need to enter onto the I-680 connector ramp and travel southbound to connect to I-780 (Curtola Parkway) back onto I-80 while the overnight closures are in place.
Eastbound I-80 travelers: Motorists traveling eastbound on I-80 will need to exit Red Top Road onto Lopes Road back and follow the detour back onto the I-80 EB on-ramp.
There won’t be access through the closure with the bridge coming down
Caltrans will utilize flaggers, as well as overhead and portable changeable message signs, alerting motorists of the detour and potential delays which are expected to be approximately 30-45 minutes.
This work is scheduled to begin as listed, but is subject to change due to traffic incidents, weather, availability of equipment, and/or materials and construction related issues.
