For Immediate Release

Sacramento County — Motorists can expect travel delays beginning Friday on the Interstate 80 to Interstate 5 connector in Sacramento for asphalt and electrical work.

A contractor will be closing the connector from westbound I-80 to northbound and southbound I-5 and the southbound Truxel Road on-ramp to westbound I-80, around the clock starting 10 p.m. Friday, August 23 and continuing through 5 a.m. Monday, August 26.

Caltrans advises motorists to plan for these delays and allow additional travel time. The California Highway Patrol will be at the work sites for traffic enforcement. The following detours are recommended.


  • From West 80 to 5 Connector, continue WB 80 to West El Camino Ave (Exit 85) or Reed Ave (Exit 83) back on EB 80 to I-5.


  • From SB Truxel to WB 80, continue SB Truxel to San Juan intersection, make a U-turn onto NB Truxel, use West 80 to San Francisco on-ramp.

This project is to preserve and extend the life of existing pavement and improve ride quality. The work will include rehabilitating pavement at various connectors and ramps in Sacramento County, on I-80, from 0.2 miles west of W. El Camino O.C. to 0.2 miles east of 80/244 Separation.More information on this project can be located here.

Weather or unexpected events may delay or prolong the work. Caltrans advises motorists to “Be Work Zone Alert.” The department will issue construction updates on Twitter
