54 Hour Weekend Closure I-5 at Monte Diablo Avenue
First series of extended ramp closures needed as part of the I-5 North Stockton Rehabilitation Project
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will perform a long-term weekend closure of the off-ramp from northbound Interstate 5 (I-5) to Monte Diablo Avenue for paving work.
Work will begin Friday, March 7, 2014, from 9:00 p.m. until Monday, March 10, 2014 at 5:00 a.m.
Detour signs are in place and motorists should expect 10 minute delays. No two ramps are closed at the same time therefore, the Country Club Avenue off-ramp remains open during the weekend Monte Diablo Avenue closure, as does the southbound I-5 off-ramp to Monte Diablo. Alternate routes should be taken whenever possible.
The 54-hour closure is part of the I-5 Rehabilitation Project, which is reconstructing the
existing eight lanes of highway from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard/Charter Way to Country Club Boulevard in Stockton. The $54 million project, which began in May, 2013 and is expected to be completed in 2015, will widen the inside shoulders from 5 feet to 10 feet; rebuild the outside shoulders and auxiliary lanes; and replace existing guard rail with a concrete median barrier.
This work is scheduled to begin as listed, but is subject to change due to traffic incidents, weather, availability of equipment and/or materials and construction related issues.
For the safety of workers and other motorists, please Slow for the Cone Zone.
