Drivers in the Elk Grove area will be dealing with a couple of road closures over the next week. Starting this evening 7 pm, the onramp to northbound Interstate 5 from Laguna Blvd will be closed. Also the #3 lane on northbound I-5 will be closed as well. To enter northbound I-5, drivers will need to use the Elk Grove Blvd onramp. The ramp will remain closed until 5 am Monday morning.
On Monday morning Calvine Road, west of Elk Grove-Florin Road, will be closed for repairs on the railroad tracks. The closure is expected to last until Thursday afternoon.
When/Where: Starting Monday, September 12 at 8 a.m. until Thursday, September 15 at 5 p.m., Calvine Road — from Power Inn Road to Elk Grove Florin Road — will be closed to through traffic. This closure has been requested by Union Pacific Railroad for needed repairs for sections of railroad tracks. Information about the closure and detours is as follows:
Increased Travel Time & Detours: Roadway users are advised to avoid this area during the closure period as there will be significant impacts to all through traffic, and to use alternative routes until project work is completed (see detour map on back). Detour signs and electronic message boards will be in place to alert motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists about the temporary road closure.
Construction Activities: Project work includes Union Pacific Railroad crews making needed repairs to sections of railroad tracks. County maintenance crews will also repair adjacent sections of pavement on Calvine Road on the east and west sides of the railroad tracks.
Closure Period: Sacramento County and the City of Elk Grove understand the challenges and inconveniences that commuters, residents, businesses, bicyclists and pedestrians will experience during the closure period and ask for the public’s patience and cooperation as we work to complete this project.
