FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ROSEVILLE – Caltrans is alerting bicyclists and pedestrians of a temporary closure of the Miner’s Ravine multi-use trail near the Interstate 80 westbound Atlantic Street on-ramp January 28-29 for the installation of bird exclusion devices beneath the on-ramp overcrossing.
The bird exclusion devices will prevent bird nesting prior to the start of construction on a $12 million on-ramp widening project. Caltrans, in cooperation with the City of Roseville Public Works Department, is expanding the width of the existing Atlantic Street/Eureka Road/Interstate 80 westbound on‐ramp to include three lanes and replacing the existing Miner’s Ravine Bridge to support the newly widened roadway. The project will reduce significant queuing which negatively impacts the operations of local streets and intersections. Major construction is expected to begin between mid-February and mid-April.
Myers & Sons Construction of Sacramento is the prime contractor for the project. Bird exclusion work is scheduled this week between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday with a full trail closure during these work periods. A bicycle and pedestrian detour on local streets will be available during the temporary trail closure.
Caltrans reminds motorists to Be Work Zone Alert and slow in construction zones for the safety of travelers and crews performing these improvements. Weather or unexpected events may delay or prolong the work. The department will issue construction updates on Twitter @CaltransDist3 and on Facebook at CaltransDistrict3.
