About the Project

The $136 million project will construct about 10 miles of bus/carpool lanes in both directions, repave the highway from east of Sacramento River Bridge to Watt Avenue and add approximately one mile of new auxiliary lanes from West El Camino Avenue to the Interstate 80/Interstate 5 interchange.

Provides congestion relief by improving overall traffic flow and mobility on this section of I-80. Helps achieve the goals of the current SACOG Metropolitan Transportation Plan that includes improving the overall air quality for the region by promoting ride sharing programs and the use of regional transit routes.
