Sacramento County — Motorists can expect travel delays beginning this weekend on Interstate 80 in north Sacramento for ramp and overcrossing construction work.
A contractor will be closing the on and off-ramps at Northgate Boulevard to westbound I-80 around the clock starting at 9 p.m. Friday, September 6 and continuing through 9 a.m. Sunday, September 8.
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. Use the following detours.
Detour- Northbound Northgate to Westbound I-80
- From NB Northgate use the slip on-ramp to EB I-80, then exit Norwood (Exit 90) to turn around and return to WB I-80.
- From WB I-80 motorists looking to exit onto Northgate use the next off-ramp at Truxel (Exit 88) and return on EB I-80 back to Northgate.
Detour- Southbound Northgate to Westbound I-80
- From SB Northgate to WB I-80 use the loop on-ramp to EB I-80, take the off-ramp at Norwood (Exit 90) and turn around back onto WB I-80.
The work is part of a pavement rehabilitation project to repair and update the surfaces of nine overcrossings in North Sacramento. More information on this project can be found on Distrcit 3's Sacramento I-80 Ramp Rehabilitation project page.
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 @CaltransDist3 and on Facebook at CaltransDistrict3.
