For Immediate Release
Sacramento — Caltrans is continuing a series of partial highway closures for the SAC 5 Corridor Enhancement Project this weekend.
Work on northbound Interstate 5 will temporarily close two lanes 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 work zone and to plan for additional travel time.
9 p.m. Friday, July 23 through 5 a.m. Monday, July 26
Northbound I-5 from south of Florin Rd to Gloria Drive (two lanes will remain open). See map attached.

From Florin Rd to NB I-5. Use the SB Los Angeles I-5 to Pocket/ Meadowview Rd exit (Exit 512) to turn around back onto northbound I-5.

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 is scheduled to rehabilitate 67 lane miles of roadway, 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.
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 is scheduled to begin as listed but subject to change due to traffic incidents, weather, availability of equipment and/ or materials, and other construction related issues.
