FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Roseville – Caltrans is alerting pedestrians and bicyclists to a temporary detour on Atlantic Street near the entrance to the Interstate 80 (I-80) westbound on-ramp.
Curb ramps at the intersection are being upgraded for Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance. The ramp on the east side of the I-80 westbound on-ramp will be closed today through Friday, April 8 with a nearby temporary detour established.
Pedestrians and bicyclists heading east on Atlantic Street will cross the intersection at the I-80 westbound on-ramp using the designated crosswalk. Once across the intersection, users will turn right and head south along the on-ramp before crossing northeast to return to the Atlantic Street sidewalk.
Caltrans is also reminding bicyclists and pedestrians of the extended closure of the Miner’s Ravine Multi-Use trail through mid-May for construction work. A bicycle and pedestrian detour on local streets is available during the closure.
In addition, the shoulder area of the I-80 westbound off-ramp to Eureka Road/Taylor Road will be closed through April 8 for construction activities.
The work is part of a $12 million project to expand the width of the existing single-lane Atlantic Street/Eureka Road/Interstate 80 westbound on‐ramp to include three lanes. The expansion includes replacing the on-ramp structure that crosses over the multi-use trail to support the newly widened roadway. The project is expected to reduce significant traffic backups and improve the operation of local streets and intersections.
Myers & Sons Construction of Sacramento is the prime contractor for the project, which is expected to be completed this summer.
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.
