FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Roseville – Caltrans is alerting motorists to expect nightly closures of the Interstate 80 (I-80) westbound on-ramp at Atlantic Street and nearby I-80 westbound lanes next week for construction activities.
From Monday, April 25 through Friday, April 29, the westbound I-80 on-ramp at Atlantic Street and the #3/4/5 lanes on mainline I-80 are scheduled to be closed nightly from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. for guardrail repairs and installation of new Midwest Guardrail System. Westbound I-80 motorists will be detoured along Harding Boulevard or North Sunrise Avenue to Douglas Boulevard during the overnight ramp closure. Weather or unexpected events may delay or prolong the work.
Construction activities are 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 three lanes and to replace the existing Miner’s Ravine Bridge to support the newly widened roadway. The project will reduce significant traffic backup and improve the operation of local streets and intersections.
For the safety of bicyclists and pedestrians, a portion of the nearby Miner’s Ravine Multi-Use Trail remains closed for construction activities through mid-May. A bicycle and pedestrian detour on local streets is available during the trail closure.
Caltrans reminds motorists to Be Work Zone Alert and slow 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.
