Highway 4 Nightime Closure Extended to Mid-June

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and the Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA) are widening Highway 4 through Pittsburg and Antioch. As part of this construction work, the contractor for the Loveridge Road project needs to close all lanes on eastbound State Route 4 at Loveridge Road for several hours in the early morning for approximately four more weeks.

The work began Monday, May 2, 2011 and was expected to continue through May 20, 2011. After completing two weeks of the work, it has been determined that the contractor will not be able to complete the work until mid-June. This work is to ensure public and crew safety while crews are working to install rebar cages for the bridge structure at Loveridge Road.

The highway closure is taking place Monday through Friday beginning at 12:30 a.m. and continuing to 5:30 a.m. Eastbound Highway 4 at the Loveridge Road undercrossing will be closed to all traffic. The detour will be as follows: motorists will be directed off the highway at Loveridge Road and immediately back on the highway at the eastbound on ramp from Loveridge Road. Work may be rescheduled if there is inclement weather.

During the same time, the loop on ramp to eastbound Highway 4 from southbound Loveridge Road will be closed as well. The detour for this closure will be as follows: motorists will drive south on Loveridge Road, turn left on Leland Road, continue on to Delta Fair Boulevard, turn left on Somersville Road, then right on to Highway 4 east.

Motorists are advised to expect delays and allow extra time for their commute. Please drive cautiously through the detour and leave a safe traveling distance between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead of you. Caltrans and CCTA appreciate your patience as we work to improve the highways.
