CALIFORNIA - Action News Now will keep you updated on road conditions throughout Northern California.

SACRAMENTO AREA BETWEEN HIGHWAYS 99 AND 50

Segments of Highway 99 in Sacramento are closed until 4:00 a.m. on Wednesday, June 16, 2021, due to a bridge deck replacement on Highway 99 at 21st Avenue.

Caltrans is advising drivers to use Interstate 5 and avoid Highway 99 completely for all 99-hours of the repair that is schedule.

The bridge that is being repaired is 62 years old and Caltrans says they need to fix it to extend its service life.

Caltrans officials said their crews are using "accelerated bridge construction techniques" to complete the work quickly. The four-day highway section closure began on Friday, June 11, 2021.

Ordinarily, a project of this scope would involve extensive shifting of traffic and lane reductions that would make it a six-month project, said Caltrans officials.

The closure is between 47th Avenue to the U.S. Highway 50 Connector. Also, crews are closing the mainline westbound Business 80/Capital City Freeway to southbound Highway 99, in addition to the westbound and eastbound Highway 50 connector ramps to southbound Highway 99.

Several ramps are also closed, including:

  • The on-ramp from 16th Street to eastbound US-50
  • The on-ramp from 29th Street/H Street to westbound Business 80/Capital City Freeway
  • The on-ramp from 29th Street/N Street to westbound Business 80/Capital City Freeway
  • The on-ramp from 29th Street/T Street to southbound SR-99
  • The on-ramp from Broadway to southbound SR-99
  • The off-ramp from southbound SR-99 to 12th Avenue
  • The off-ramp from northbound SR-99 to 12th Avenue
  • The on-ramp from 14th Avenue/30th Street to southbound SR-99
  • The on-ramp (slip) from Fruitridge Road to northbound SR-99
  • The on-ramp (loop) from Fruitridge Road to northbound SR-99The on-ramp (slip) from East 47th Avenue to northbound SR-99
  • The on-ramp (loop) from West 47th Avenue to northbound SR-99

Caltrans says that the Sacramento Regional Transit (SacRT) is providing free light rail service during the closure. CLICK HERE to find the free rider flyer that you need to download to use the service for free during the 99-hour Highway 99 June closure. CLICK HERE for the light rail schedule.
