FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ROSEVILLE – Caltrans is alerting motorists about scheduled overnight closures of the Atlantic Street on-ramp to westbound Interstate 80 in Roseville for the final installation of bird exclusion devices beneath the on-ramp overcrossing.
Final work is scheduled to occur overnight Monday, Feb. 8 and Tuesday, Feb. 9 between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. The on-ramp will be closed to traffic during the work period, with westbound I-80 motorists detoured along Harding Boulevard or North Sunrise Avenue to Douglas Boulevard. The work will not impact the Miner’s Ravine multi-use trail, which will remain open to bicyclists and pedestrians.
The bird exclusion devices 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 traffic queuing and improve the operations of local streets and intersections. Major construction is expected to begin between mid-February and mid-April.
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.
