Nighttime Closure Scheduled for Southbound State Highway 160

Detour at Arden Way in North Sacramento

SACRAMENTO COUNTY – Caltrans has scheduled a nighttime full closure for the southbound direction of State Highway 160 near Arden Way in North Sacramento on Thursday, June 22.

Crews are scheduled for concrete grinding and roadway slab replacement work. Nearby residents may experience loud construction type noises that include saw cutting, jack hammering and commercial vehicle beeping noises.

Caltrans urges motorists to seek an alternate route or expect additional travel times and delays due to changing lane restrictions and ramp closures.

The closure will be from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. Thursday, June 22 and again on Friday, June 23 (if needed). Advanced signage will be set up for detours and posted work zone speeds will be enforced by the California Highway Patrol.
