Work on a project to relocate the Cordelia truck scales on Interstate 80 in Fairfield is scheduled to begin this week.
Starting Monday, crews will prepare for construction by installing safety barriers and adding temporary traffic striping along eastbound I-80 between the weigh station exit and the eastbound Highway 12 and eastbound I-80 interchange, according to a California Department of Transportation news release.
To ensure worker and public safety during the work, five nights of overnight intermittent lane closures are scheduled. They are scheduled to begin at 10 p.m. Monday and be completed at 6 a.m. Saturday, weather permitting.
The overnight closures are scheduled from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday through Thursday, and 10 p.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Saturday.
Motorists are advised to allow extra travel time.
