SACRAMENTO– Caltrans is advising motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists to expect longterm sidewalk and bike lane closure on Riverside Boulevard at Casilada Way due to construction related work.
A contractor has begun excavation for the new Pedestrian Overcrossing (POC). For safety a long-term, around the clock sidewalk and bike lane closure are in place. The existing POC will remain open for use.
Work on the opposite side of the POC on Karbet Way began in September. Caltrans reminds motorists that these workzones are within city surface streets in a residential area. The speed limit is 25 mph.

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