SACRAMENTO-

Starting Friday night around 8 p.m., Meadowview Road will be closed for a week for work on the Regional Transit tracks.

The RT's Blue Line extension to Cosumnes River College is an ongoing project in South Sacramento. The new portion of the line will include three additional stations.

Over the weekend, crews will be laying light rail tracks through Meadowview Road near Detroit Boulevard.

"We had to make sure we did all the utility work before we could lay the tracks," Ed Scofield with Regional Transit said.

Drivers are being asked to use Franklin Bouelvard and 24th Street as detours until the project is completed.

The Meadowview Road closure is expected to be over by Monday, Jan. 26 at 5 a.m.
