Sacramento – Caltrans is advising motorists to expect continued nightly construction work along parts of Interstate 5 from north of Elk Grove to the U.S. Highway 50 interchange and to south of the American River.

Additionally, a special event being held at Discovery Park is expected to add heavy delays near the American River Bridge. The Aftershock Concert Event is scheduled for this weekend from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. October 11, 12 and 13.

Large attendance numbers are expected and will add higher traffic volume to the surrounding area for northbound and southbound I-5 from south of Richards Boulevard to El Camino Avenue. More information can be found at the Sac County Aftershock page.

Caltrans contractors continue ongoing roadway excavation and slab replacement work at nearby Richards Boulevard from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday through Friday with some weekend work. Daytime work is ongoing, but will be non-traffic interfering and behind k-rail.

The work is part of the $370 million project to rehabilitate 67 lane miles of roadway and build 23 miles of carpool lanes, add additional sound walls and improve the existing electrical and drainage. $48.3 million is from SB 1 funding.

Caltrans urges motorists to plan ahead for additional travel time. The California Highway Patrol will be at the work sites for traffic enforcement.

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 @CaltransDist3 and on Facebook at CaltransDistrict3.
