Work Zone Mobility and Safety Program

The project may require over 300 working days to complete. A majority of the work will be constructed using a crossover to handle through traffic, while merging traffic and traffic with downtown Sacramento destinations will use two non-diverted lanes. This work will be done on a 24/7 basis. Remainder of project construction will be completed using standard lane closures and the 55-hour weekend lane closures.
