Caltrans Highway 65 Paving Project Begins April 25

ROSEVILLE/LINCOLN –The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is alerting motorists about a paving project beginning on Monday, April 25 that will impact motorists along the Highway 65 corridor between Roseville and Lincoln.

The $7 million paving overlay project will take place during nighttime hours and will require the closure of one of the two lanes of the highway. Ramps connecting to and from Highway 65 will also be impacted during those hours. All lanes and ramps will be open during non-construction times.

Because paving work moves quickly, ramp closure signage has been placed at all ramps in the project boundaries notifying motorists of the following closure times for interchanges in the project area:

Highway 65 Northbound:  9 p.m. to 6 a.m.

Highway 65 Southbound:  8 p.m. to 5 a.m.

In order to accommodate motorists and residents, only one set of ramps will be closed at a time allowing motorists to travel to the next interchange, exit and cross over Highway 65 to access their exit from the opposite direction. Because of the rapid pace of paving operations, ramp closures and openings will occur throughout the project’s construction – from April 25 to August 24.

Weather or other unexpected events may prolong the work or cause construction activities to be rescheduled. Motorists are urged to be “Be Work Zone Alert” and to “Slow for the Cone Zone.” Caltrans will issue updates on Twitter @D3PIO and on Facebook at CaltransDistrict 3.
