For Immediate Release

Sacramento — The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is continuing a series of weekend partial highway closures for the SAC 5 Corridor Enhancement Project beginning this weekend.

This project includes $48.3 million in funding from Senate Bill (SB) 1, The Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017. SB 1 provides $5 billion in transportation funding annually split between the state and local agencies. Road projects progress through construction phases more quickly based on the availability of SB 1 funds, including projects that are partially funded by SB 1. For more information about other transportation projects funded by SB 1, visit RebuildingCA.

Work on southbound Interstate 5 will temporarily close two lanes in the southbound direction this weekend from Friday night into early Monday morning. Signed detours will be in place, but Caltrans urges motorists to use State Route 99 as an alternate route to navigate around the closure and to plan for additional travel time.


9 p.m. Friday, June 25 through 5 a.m. Monday, June 28. (Around the clock work.)


Southbound Sacramento I-5 from north of Sutterville Road to 25th Avenue Undercrossing. (Two lanes will remain open for southbound I-5 traffic.)


Sutterville Rd on- and off-ramps to and from southbound I-5

W Street on-ramp to southbound I-5

DETOUR for Sutterville Road:

From Sutterville Rd - Use NB I-5 to Richards Blvd (Exit 520) to turn back onto SB I-5

Exiting at Sutterville Rd - Continue SB on I-5 and use Seamas Ave (Exit 515) to turn back onto NB I-5 to Sutterville Rd. (Exit 516)

DETOUR for W Street:

From W Street – Use WB Business Loop 80 to San Francisco and exit at South River Road (Exit 3) (stay right to 5th Street) onto EB Business Loop 80 on-ramp to SB I-5 Los Angeles (Exit 4A) onto SB I-5.

The around the clock construction work will require heavy equipment and commercial trucking. Nearby residents can expect loud construction type noise and commercial truck back-up beeping noises during day and nighttime hours. The contractor is scheduled to perform paving and striping.

The ongoing work has added sound walls in 2020 and scheduled to rehabilitate 67-lane miles of roadway, will build 23 miles of carpool lanes, and improve the existing electrical and drainage systems along this corridor.

Motorists traveling through the work zone should expect lane restrictions and should be aware of commercial work vehicles traveling in and out of the area. The work zone speed limit has been reduced to 55 mph and the California Highway Patrol will be present for traffic enforcement.

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.
