The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will perform various road construction activities on State Route 4(SR-4)/Crosstown Freeway from Interstate 5 to SR-99.

The #1 (left) and #2 (middle) lanes on eastbound SR-4/Crosstown Freeway from Airport Way to SR-99 will close now through Friday, Sept. 16, 2016, from 7 p.m. until 5 a.m.

The eastbound and westbound  on and off-ramps on SR-4/Crosstown Freeway from  Wilson Way to Filbert Street will be closed through Friday, Sept. 16, 2016, from 8 p.m. until 6 a.m.

Also being closed nightly for highway construction through Friday, Sept. 16 will be the eastbound and westbound connector ramp from State Route 4 (SR-4)/Crosstown Freeway to southbound SR-99, from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m.

Motorists should expect 10 minute delays in these areas. Alternate routes should be taken whenever possible.

Meanwhile, motorists can also expect a shift in traffic lanes on northbound Interstate 5 (I-5) from Pershing Avenue to Alpine Avenue for construction activities. The lane shift is scheduled to be in place for approximately two months.

Caltrans will perform the lane shift on Tuesday, Sept. 20 after 4 a.m.

The #1 (left) and #2 (middle) lanes on northbound I-5 will be detoured onto the southbound traffic lanes of the interstate. Northbound motorists must stay in the #3 (right) lane for on and off-ramp access to State Route 4/Crosstown Freeway, Pershing Avenue, Country Club Boulevard and Monte Diablo Avenue.

The lane shift is part of the $65 million I-5 Rehabilitation Project. Crews will be replacing the existing roadway, which will improve pavement life and provide a smoother driving surface.

Morning commuters should be alert to changes in the road the day of the shift. Alternate routes should be taken whenever possible.

This work is scheduled to begin as listed, but is subject to change due to traffic incidents, weather, availability of equipment and/or materials, and construction related issues.

For the safety of workers and other motorists, remember to Slow For the Cone Zone.
