Richmond: New lane closures for Interstate 580 project


If negotiating the lane closures and alterations on Interstate 580 by the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge hasn’t been confusing enough, and judging from the traffic backups it has been plenty confusing, here is the latest round announced Tuesday by Caltrans:

Interstate 580 Scofield Avenue and Western Drive
Bridge Decks Replacement Project

Eastbound Lane Closures Resume

Contra Costa County – Eastbound lane closures resume for the Interstate 580 construction project east of the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge.

· Tuesday night, October 29, through Thursday night, October 31, Caltrans will close one eastbound lane from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.
· Friday night, November 1, Caltrans will close one eastbound lane from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m.
· In general, during November, eastbound lane closures will continue as necessary Monday night, through Thursday night, from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m., and Friday night, from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.

This is an active construction site and the 45 MPH speed zone will be enforced by the California Highway Patrol. Drive cautiously through the construction zone and leave a safe traveling distance between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead of you. Please remember to “Slow for the Cone Zone.”
