Construction Notice: I-80 Green Valley Road Offramp & Onramp-3-Day Closure

An important construction update for Napa County commuters:

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and its project partner the Solano Transportation Authority (STA) are nearing completion of the new Green Valley Road overcrossing above Interstate-80 (I-80) in Solano County. 

As part of the work, starting Friday, May 20, crews will begin constructing the permanent roadway connection from the eastbound I-80 Green Valley Road off-ramp to the new Green Valley Road overcrossing.

For worker and public safety, the Green Valley Road offramp from eastbound I-80, the onramp from Green Valley Road onto eastbound I-80 and southbound I-680 will be closed for three days. Closure starts Friday, May 20 at 10:00 PM until Monday, May 23 at 2:00 PM.

During the off-ramp closure, motorists traveling to Green Valley Road from eastbound I-80 are advised to exit eastbound I-80 at either the Red Top Road or Suisun Valley Road exits.
