Highway 4 eastbound full freeway closure early Saturday morning
As part of the Highway 4 construction work, the contractor will be installing overhead sign structures. In order to ensure crew and public safety during this work, the contractor will close all lanes of eastbound Highway 4 between Loveridge Road and Somersville Road/Auto Center Drive on Saturday morning, August 17, from 2:00 am to 6:00 am.
The detour for this work will be as follows (see map, below):
o Eastbound motorists will be directed off the highway at Loveridge Road, right on Loveridge Road, left on East Leland Road, becomes Delta Fair Boulevard, left on Somersville Road, and right onto the eastbound Highway 4 on-ramp from Somersville Road/Auto Center Drive. For detour map, please see attachment.
The Highway 4 projects include improvements to the entire project corridor that will help revitalize eastern Contra Costa County. The projects expand Highway 4 from four to eight lanes between Loveridge Road and SR-160, and add a BART extension from Pittsburg to Antioch (eBART). The projects will also expand the highway from two to four lanes from Lone Tree Way to Sand Creek Road.
This will greatly improve transit accessibility for the region and help reduce traffic congestion and enhance the quality of life for the more than 250,000 residents of eastern Contra Costa County. The projects have been carefully staged to keep 130,000 vehicles per day moving as major construction and demolition work continue, and include over $1.3 billion in State, Federal, Regional Bridge Toll, and Contra Costa Measures C & J sales tax funds.
Caltrans and CCTA appreciate your patience as we work to improve the highways. For the most current information on all Highway 4 corridor closures please visit our website at: http://4eastcounty.org.
