FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ROSEVILLE – Caltrans is scheduled to close the westbound Interstate 80 (I-80) on-ramp at Atlantic Street Saturday night into Sunday morning for drainage work.
Crews will be installing asphalt concrete dikes for drainage throughout the on-ramp project area. During the work, the westbound I-80 on-ramp from Atlantic Street will be closed to traffic between 9 p.m. Saturday, September 25 and 8 a.m. Sunday, September 26.
During the temporary ramp closure, westbound I-80 motorists will be detoured along Harding Boulevard or North Sunrise Avenue to Douglas Boulevard. Weather or unexpected events may delay or prolong the work.
This $12 million project is expanding the width of the existing single-lane Atlantic Street/Eureka Road/Interstate 80 westbound on‐ramp to include three lanes and is replacing the existing Miner’s Ravine Bridge to support the newly widened roadway. The project is expected to reduce significant traffic backups and improve the operation of local streets and intersections.
Caltrans also is advising community members that the closure of the Miner’s Ravine Multi-Use Trail has been extended through mid-March 2022 for ongoing construction activities. Due to anticipated nice weather during the fall and winter months, construction crews will continue on-ramp work, enabling the project to be completed earlier than anticipated next year. A bicycle and pedestrian detour on local streets is available during the trail closure.
Caltrans reminds motorists to “Be Work Zone Alert” and slow down in construction zones for the safety of travelers and crews performing these improvements. The department will issue construction updates on Twitter @CaltransDist3 and on Facebook at CaltransDistrict3.
