Highway 4 eastbound lane closure in Hillcrest Avenue area early morning April 16

During construction for the Highway 4 (SR-4) widening project, the contractor will be removing an existing overhead sign structure that spans eastbound SR-4.

In order to ensure crew and public safety during this work, the contractor will close all lanes of SR-4 in the eastbound direction between Hillcrest Avenue and SR-160 overnight. This closure is scheduled to take place on Tuesday morning, April 16 from 1:00 am to 4:00 am.

The detour for this work will be as follows:

o Eastbound motorists will be directed off the highway at the Hillcrest Avenue exit, left on Hillcrest Avenue, right on East 18th Street, right on Empire Avenue, right on Laurel Road, and right onto the eastbound loop on-ramp to SR-4. For detour map, please see attached.

o If traveling to northbound SR-160, while along the above detour route on East 18th Street, turn right onto the northbound loop on-ramp to SR-160.Motorists are advised to expect delays and allow extra time for their commute. Please drive with caution through the detours and leave a safe traveling distance between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead of you.

The SR-4 Widening Project includes over $540 million in State, Federal, and Contra Costa Measure J sales tax, and other local funds to widen SR-4 from four to eight lanes between Loveridge Road and SR-160. The combined effort of Caltrans and the Contra Costa Transportation Authority on projects in the SR-4 corridor will reduce congestion, create a safer roadway, improve operations, and reduce traffic delays on this important east-west connector. When completed, the SR-4 highway median will be used to extend BART service from Pittsburg/Bay Point to a new Antioch station at Hillcrest Avenue.

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.
