Caltrans Accelerates Repairs on Various Ramps Along Interstate 5 in Yolo County Due to SB 1 Funds
Pavement Project Will Increase Safety for Motorists Entering & Exiting Interstate
YOLO COUNTY - Caltrans will repave damaged pavement on exits and entrances along Interstate 5 from County Road 17 north of the city of Woodland to County Road 6 Interchange near the town of Dunnigan in Yolo County, due to the funds from Senate Bill 1 (SB 1), the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017.
"The on and off-ramps in this area have endured a lot of wear and tear as a result of the many commercial trucks entering and exiting the interstate. This project will provide a safer and smoother transition for motorists entering and exiting the interstate, and will benefit California’s commercial truckers and agricultural industries."
Approximately 35,000 motorists per day travel through the area to reach their destination, and more than 6,800 truckers per day use this segment of Interstate 5.
"Without this SB 1 funded project, the pavement would continue to deteriorate, which would have a direct impact on travelers and result in costly maintenance repairs in the future. Providing smooth roadways are imperative for our local farmers, as well as commercial truckers and travelers exiting the interstate for food, fuel and lodging."
This $2.1 million project has been awarded to Lamon Construction of Yuba County in California. Work began the week of May 7 and the project is scheduled to be completed in November 2018. Crews will fill potholes and replace the damaged pavement on the entrance and exit ramps at I-5/State Route 16 Separation, County Road 17 Interchange, County Road 8 Interchange, and County Road 6 Interchange. Crews are scheduled to work Monday through Friday, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 a.m. Expect full ramp closures and ramp restrictions. Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead, use alternate routes, and Be Work Zone Alert.
Work schedule is subject to change due to traffic incidents, weather, availability of equipment and/or materials, and/or construction-related issues. More information and updates on projects can be found on the Caltrans District 3 Project Map or on Twitter via @CaltransDist3 and on Facebook at CaltransDistrict3.
SB 1 provides an ongoing funding increase of approximately $1.8 billion annually for the maintenance and rehabilitation of the state highway system. SB 1 funds will enable Caltrans to fix more than 17,000 lane miles of pavement, 500 bridges and 55,000 culverts by 2027.
Caltrans is committed to conducting its business in a fully transparent manner and detailing its progress to the public. For complete details on SB 1, visit http://www.rebuildingca.ca.gov/.
