uuTRAFFIC ADVISORYuu

RAMP AND FREEWAY CLOSURES NEXT WEEK AROUND 237/880 INTERCHANGE

 Milpitas—Northbound Interstate 880 is subject to full closure each night between midnight and 5 AM beginning early Monday, February 26 until Sunday, March 4. Additionally, access to northbound 880 from the eastbound and westbound Route 237 on-ramps is subject to closure during the same dates from midnight until 5:30 AM. The freeway and ramp closures will not occur concurrently and may be delayed if rain occurs.

For both ramp and freeway closures, detour signs will direct motorists to McCarthy Boulevard to return to northbound 880 at Dixon Landing Road. Southbound 880 will not be affected by the closures.

The purpose of the closure is to construct and finish falsework at the north end of the eastbound 237 to northbound 880 connector under construction. Work is being done during the overnight hours when traffic volume is the lightest.
