Caltrans schedules a 104-hour West bound I-80 closure near Vallejo during Labor Day weekend

Drivers can always count on traffic during Labor Day weekend. It’s about to get even more congested in Vallejo due to work by Caltrans.

Caltrans has scheduled a 104-hour full highway closure of westbound I-80 on Labor Day weekend starting Thursday, at 9 p.m. and concluding at 5 a.m. on Tuesday. West bound I-80 will be closed and traffic detoured beginning at the West bound I-80/I-780 interchange in Vallejo.

The closure includes the closures of all westbound traffic lanes on WB I-80 on the Zampa Bridge across the Carquinez Strait. Eastbound I-80 traffic lanes will remain open.

For motorists traveling westbound on I-80 at I-780 (Curtola Pkwy) will need to exit onto eastbound I-780 in Vallejo and continue eastbound I-780 to southbound I-680.

Motorists can then use southbound I-680 to reach westbound state route 4, westbound state route 24 or westbound I-580 to access central and south Bay Area destinations.

Caltrans has also scheduled nightly lane closures at various times during the weekend of August 31 toperform work on the I-80/SR-29 Bridge Separation Project in Vallejo.

Motorists traveling on westbound I-80 just east of the Carquinez Bridge Toll Plaza should drive with caution as traffic will be reduced down to one lane on westbound I-80 before the bridge. These nightly lane reductions will be in place on westbound I-80 from Magazine Street in Vallejo to the Carquinez Toll Plaza.

The lane closures are needed to allow crews to perform additional work on the elevated section of westbound I-80 in Vallejo just east of the Carquinez Bridge.
