Labor Day weekend commuters could finally move along highway 80 a bit easier after a road improvement project was completed on Monday.
The Caltrans project, which shut down all westbound lanes of traffic beginning on Friday, consisted of “major pavement repair work on the stretch of roadway, including pouring more than 9,000 cubic yards of concrete on three miles of lanes,” Caltrans told Bay City News.
All of the westbound lanes on the busy interstate, between Interstate Highway 780 in Vallejo and state Highway 4 in Hercules, were reportedly reopened around 4:45 p.m.

Caltrans “also took the opportunity to repair tower lighting on the Zampa and Carquinez bridges” and “trimmed back trees and brush along the roadway,” Bay City News reports.
