Beginning next week, work on the Elk Grove Creek Trail Pedestrian and Bicycle Overcrossing will require overnight freeway and road closures at Highway 99 between Laguna Blvd. and Elk Grove Blvd.
This month, construction crews will build the new freeway pedestrian bridge framework, requiring nighttime closures startingTuesday. Motorists can expect delays near the project on the following dates and times:
· Oct. 8 and 9: West Stockton Blvd. at Elk Grove Creek, 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.
· Oct. 9 and 10: East Stockton Blvd. at Elk Grove Creek, 10 p.m.to 6 a.m.
· Oct. 14 and 15: Southbound lanes on Highway 99, midnight to 4 a.m.
· Oct. 16 and 17: Northbound lanes on Highway 99, midnight to 4 a.m.
The City is constructing Elk Grove’s first pedestrian and bicycle freeway overcrossing, including a nearly 1,300 foot long, 14-foot wide bridge spanning East and West Stockton Blvd. and Highway 99 that will connect to a new 2,640-foot long, 12-foot wide asphalt trail along the creek.
The City of Elk Grove does not anticipate the closures will create significant traffic delays. Detours will be clearly marked. Message signs will alert motorists in advance of the road closure before work begins.
The City of Elk Grove is more than halfway complete with the Elk Grove Creek Trail Pedestrian and Bicycle Overcrossing, with completion expected by spring 2014.
