I-80 Pavement Rehabilitation Project
Caltrans has begun investing over $140 million on major pavement rehabilitation of I-80 to begin construction in the summer of 2008 between Vallejo and Vacaville. The deterioration of I-80 in Solano County has been significant. This major rehabilitation work will include placing over five (5) inches of asphalt over the existing pavement. As an interim measure, Caltrans completed a $2 million emergency pavement repair project to repair the severely damaged concrete slabs until the major pavement rehabilitation project can begin. Last summer, a similar $2 million emergency construction project replaced over 200 damaged concrete slabs.
This work is being funded with State Highway Operations & Protection Program, better known as the SHOPP. This funding program of the state is comprised of both state and federal funds. The purpose of this funding program is to maintain and preserve investments in the State Highway system and its supporting infrastructure. The major rehabilitation work overlaps portions of the new 8.7 miles of I-80 High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes in Solano County. This HOV Lane project limits are from Red Top Road to Air Base Park-way. As such, the rehabilitation work is being coordinated within the limits of the I-80 HOV Lanes project, the major pavement rehabilitation work that overlaps the limits of the HOV Lanes project will occur after the HOV lane construction is completed and opened.
