Highway 4 full eastbound freeway closure at Loveridge Road, Thursday morning
As part of the Highway 4 construction work, the contractor will be installing electrical loops into the new roadway of eastbound Highway 4. In order to ensure crew and public safety during this work, the contractor will close all lanes of Highway 4 in the eastbound direction at Loveridge Road on Thursday morning, February 13, from 12:30 am to 5:30 am.
The detour for this work will be as follows:
o Eastbound motorists will be directed off the highway at Loveridge Road and immediately back on the highway at the eastbound Highway 4 on-ramp from Loveridge Road. 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 Balfour 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 SR-4 corridor closures please visit our website at: http://4eastcounty.org.
