For Immediate Release
Sacramento County — The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and Norcal Paving, a joint venture of A. Teichert and Son Inc. and Granite Construction Companies, is scheduled to continue partial highway closures nightly during the weekdays and weekends for the Interstate 5 Corridor Enhancement (FixSac5) Project.
Crews are scheduled for pavement work, striping, drainage, and other construction activities. Motorists can expect closures two lanes at a time on northbound I-5 near 25th and 56th Avenue and southbound south of Florin Road. Various ramps are scheduled for closures. Construction work is scheduled nightly from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.
Motorists are encouraged to use State Route 99 as an alternate route. Motorists still wishing to use I-5 during nighttime to early morning hours should expect delays and plan for additional travel time. Motorists have experienced up to 30-minute delays, so please plan accordingly.
The speed limit has been reduced to 55 MPH through the construction zone 24/7. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) will be patrolling the project site ticketing motorists who are not adhering to the posted speed limit signs. The closures and speed-limit reductions are necessary for the safety of motorists and workers. Please “Be Work Zone Alert” – someone’s loved one is at work.
9 p.m. to 5 a.m.
- Northbound I-5 from 25th Avenue to Sutterville Road and near 56th Avenue
- Southbound I-5 from Sutterville Road to 25th Avenue and from south of Florin Road to Laguna and Elk Grove Boulevard
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.
Nearby residents can expect loud construction noises and commercial truck back-up beeping noises during day and nighttime hours.
So far, crews added sound walls in 2020 and are now working to repair 67-lane miles of roadway, build 23 miles of carpool lanes, and improve the existing electrical and drainage systems along this corridor.
This $370 million 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.
For more information on this project text “FixSac5” to 74121 or visit FixSac5. Caltrans encourages the public to follow construction updates on Twitter and Facebook @FixSac5.
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.
