I-5 Road Construction and Repavement Scheduled Near Tracy
Work to Commence Week of January 5, 2015Posted: Jan 5, 2015
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is preparing a $51 million repaving and restoration project to improve Interstate 5 (I-5) from the I-205 interchange near Tracy in San Joaquin County to the Stanislaus/Merced County line.
Caltrans will upgrade more than 40 miles of I-5, including freeway ramps. Construction is scheduled to begin the Week of January 5, 2015, and continue into January 2016.
Work will primarily be at night (10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.) and at least one lane is scheduled to always be open in both directions. No two consecutive ramps will close at the same time. No work is scheduled on weekends or holidays. By taking these steps, Caltrans hopes to minimize the impact on residents, travelers and businesses.
Crows Landing, Gustine, Newman, Patterson, Tracy and Westley are in close proximity. Caltrans has notified cities and counties, emergency services, businesses, school districts, agricultural organizations, major employers and others in the region.
Work is funded through savings in the State Highway Operation and Protection Program. Motorists should expect 15 minute delays and seek alternate routes.
