                            NEW INTERCHANGE CONSTRUCTION TEMPORARILY 
                            CLOSES RAMPS IN AND AROUND CROCKETT

On Friday, January 19, 2001 the eastbound Crockett/Port Costa off-ramp heading into Crockett from I-80, will be permanently closed for construction of the new Crockett interchange. A new eastbound off-ramp will be constructed as part of the Crockett Interchange project and will be complete in early 2003.

Motorists can access Crockett from eastbound I-80 by using the Cummings Skyway exit, turning left onto Cummings Skyway and then taking a right on to San Pablo Avenue.

On Tuesday, January 23, 2001 the on and off-ramps at Cummings Skyway for westbound I-80 (towards Oakland) will be temporarily closed to widen I-80. After the widening is complete the westbound Cummings Skyway ramps will be reopened. This work will take approximately nine months to finish. The eastbound ramps (toward Vallejo) at Cummings Skyway will remain open.

During this closure westbound traffic heading out of Crockett will not be affected, as the westbound on-ramp to I-80 from Crockett will remain open.

Motorists can use the Willow Avenue ramp in Rodeo as an alternate for using the westbound Cummings Skyway ramp to access I-80. Detour signs will be posted.

If you have any questions about ramp closures or the Carquinez Bridge Project in general, please call the Public Information Officer at (510) 787-4084 or the Public Information Coordinator at (510) 787-4080.
