Demolition Work Shifting to Daytime Hours
Crews Removing Barrier Rail on Northbound Segment of Viaduct in Roseville
ROSEVILLE – Construction crews will shift nighttime barrier rail demolition work on the State Highway 65 viaduct in Roseville to the daytime hours early Monday.
Before the new schedule starts, crews will be wrapping up overnight demolition work by Saturday morning so the contractor can maintain its construction schedule before the winter weather arrives. The nighttime work will occur from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. today (October 17), Thursday and Friday. At the same time, Caltrans will close one of the two northbound lanes on Highway 65 between Interstate 80 and the Stanford Ranch Road-Galleria Boulevard exit as well as the westbound Interstate 80 connector to northbound Highway 65.
“Caltrans is committed to minimizing inconvenience to local residents and motorists,” said Caltrans District 3 Director Amarjeet S. Benipal. “Because of concerns about the nighttime demolition work, we are working with the contractor on plans to shift the activity to the daytime hours, starting Monday. We appreciate everyone’s patience with this crucial construction project to increase safety and reduce traffic congestion along this important economic corridor.”
Under the daytime schedule, crews will be performing the demolition work from approximately 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday (with weekend work possible). Both northbound lanes will remain open during the day. However, motorists can expect traffic congestion in the area.
The viaduct work is part of a $50 million Interstate 80-Highway 65 interchange improvements project that calls for constructing a third lane on northbound Highway 65 from I-80 to Pleasant Grove Boulevard and making other improvements to the Galleria Boulevard/Stanford Ranch interchange.
