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 weekend roadwork for the Interstate 5 Corridor Enhancement (FixSac5) Project.
Crews are scheduled for pavement work, striping and other construction activities this weekend. Motorists can expect the Laguna Blvd ramps to be closed from southbound I-5 during the daytime.
Friday, December 17 from 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. Saturday, December 18 from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.
LOCATION AND WORK:
Southbound I-5 to Laguna Blvd Off-ramp and Laguna Blvd On-ramp closed for pavement work.
Motorists can use the following ramps at Elk Grove Boulevard as a detour.
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”
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. The project is expected to be completed by Summer 2022.
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. 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 construction-related issues.
