Caltrans’ “I-80 Across the Top” project announced this week that the 5-year, $133.3 million revitalization of a stretch of highway through Sacramento includes shutting down a popular exit for three weeks.

The eastbound Truxel Road exit will close, tentatively, the first week of October.

Across the Top is meant to add 10 miles of bus and carpool lanes along both directions of Interstate 80 from just east of the Sacramento River to Watt Avenue.

The project is scheduled to be completed in August 2016.

More information about the project, including detours, can be found here.
