FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sacramento County — The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) began its fifth extended weekend closure for the SAC 5 Corridor Enhancement (FixSac5) Project on Friday, July17 at 9:00 p.m.
The first night of the partial interstate closure, crews removed concrete from the roadways and completed the subgrade work for pavement operation. Originally, the #3 (right-middle) and #4 (right) lanes on northbound and southbound Interstate 5 (I-5) between Florin Road and Seamas Avenue were scheduled to be closed; however, crews needed to extend the southbound lane closures to Sutterville Road.
- Beginning 9:00 p.m. Friday, July 17 until 5:00 a.m. Monday, July 20
- On-ramps from Florin Road to northbound & southbound I-5
- Off-ramps from southbound I-5 to Florin Road
- Off-ramp from southbound I-5 to 43rd Avenue
- On-ramp from 43rd Avenue to northbound I-5
- Off-ramp from northbound I-5 to Seamas Avenue
- The #3 (right-middle) & #4 (right) lanes CLOSED on northbound I-5 from Florin Road to Seamas Avenue.
- The #3 (right-middle) & #4 (right) lanes CLOSED on southbound I-5 from Sutterville Road to Florin Road.
Two lanes in each direction will remain open while crews work around the clock. For the safety of crews and to avoid delays and traffic congestion, motorists are encouraged to use State Route 99 as alternate route.
The California Highway Patrol (CHP) will be patrolling the project site ticketing motorists who are not adhering to the posted speed limit signs. The speed limit has been reduced to 55 MPH through the construction zone 24/7.
The closures and speed limit reductions are necessary for the safety of motorists and workers. Caltrans advises motorists to “Be Work Zone Alert” – someone’s loved one is at work.
A contractor is scheduled for excavating, paving and striping. The around the clock construction work will require heavy equipment and commercial trucking. Nearby residents expect commercial truck back-up beeping noises and loud jack hammering type noises during day and nighttime hours.

The ongoing work is part of the SAC 5 Corridor Enhancement Project to repair 67 lane miles of roadway and construct 23 miles of new High Occupancy Vehicle (carpool) lanes. The $370 million project extends from about one mile south of Elk Grove Boulevard Overcrossing to the American River Bridge. Crews will also replace a pedestrian overcrossing, construct sound walls, install new fiber optic lines, new ramp meters, repair exiting electrical and drainage systems, and extend various entrance and exit ramps. Funding includes $48.3 million from SB 1. The contract was awarded May 31, 2019 and construction began in late July 2019. The project is expected to be completed by December 2022.
Work is scheduled to begin as listed but subject to change due to traffic incidents, weather, availability of equipment and/ or materials, and construction related issues.
