As part of construction activities for the Watt Avenue/US Highway 50 interchange project, lane and ramp closures will be in effect for three nights, beginning tonight.
The overnight closures will begin at 10 p.m. tonight, Tuesday and Wednesday and continue until 5 a.m. the following day.
Multiple closures for highway on and offramps will occur throughout the interchange during the closure period, according to a Sacramento County Department of Transportation news release. Motorists are advised to use caution when driving through the interchange and to follow posted ramp detour information.
On Watt Avenue from Folsom Boulevard to La Riviera Drive, one lane will remain open in each direction during closures, and motorists may experience delays.
The project will modify the existing interchange to reduce congestion, install dedicated transit facilities, and improve access and safety for bicyclists and pedestrians, according to county officials. Work during the closure periods will include temporary striping and setting up concrete barriers for worker protection.
