Caltrans Closing 3-Mile Stretch Of I-80 Again This Weekend
56-hour full closure of I-80

It’s going to be another blistering weekend in the Sacramento Valley. If you’re planning a beach trip to get away, your trip back is going to get tricky. Caltrans will be closing a 3-mile long stretch of eastbound I-80 beginning Friday night to Monday morning.
This is the second of three weekends Caltrans has planned for a paving project. The next weekend will be August 14th.
If you’re heading to Sacramento from the east bay you’ll exit eastbound I-80 in Hercules and get on eastbound Hwy 4. Continue to northbound 680, cross the Benicia Bridge and stay on 680 until you get back on eastbound I-80 in Fairfield.
Another option is to take Highway 4 to northbound 680. Then head west on 780 and reenter eastbound I-80 in Vallejo.
Traffic got pretty backed up the last time, so be prepared for more significant delays.
During Labor Day weekend Caltrans will start work in the opposite direction. Westbound I-80 will be fully closed starting Thursday night, August 31 through Tuesday morning, September 5, 2023.
