The Contra Costa Transportation Authority is warning about a second weekend closure of Interstate 80 between San Pablo Avenue and San Pablo Dam Road.

The closure of both eastbound and westbound lanes begins this Saturday at 11 p.m. and ends Sunday at 7 a.m.

Detours will steer drivers around the closure. See the maps below for info on detours.

This overnight closure, as well as one that occurred last month, is part of the interchange improvement project on Interstate 80 at San Pablo Dam Road.

The closures “will enable crews to grade (properly adjust and align) falsework recently constructed for a new pedestrian overcrossing at Riverside Avenue, which will replace the current overcrossing,” CCTA said. “When complete, the new overcrossing will extend across Amador Street, enhancing safety for Riverside Elementary School students and the community.”




  1. Macdonald Avenue is spelled incorrectly on your map.
