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.
For detour-related questions or other project information, call or email John Jaeger, senior civil engineer, at (916) 874-7507, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Anthony Voo, associate civil engineer, (916) 874-7871, email@example.com.

What You Should Know About Comments on Sacbee.com
Sacbee.com is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)
Here are some rules of the road:
Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "Report Abuse" link to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.
Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.
Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.
Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand.
Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.
Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.
Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.
Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.
Don't flag other users' comments just because you don't agree with their point of view. Please only flag comments that violate these guidelines.
You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "Report Abuse" link to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.
If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them.
