STOCKTON, CA – Caltrans would like to update drivers on the closures at Brookside, Swain and River Roads as part of the Interstate 5 (I-5) North Stockton Improvement Project.
Brookside Road under I-5 is scheduled to re-open the week of October 15, 2012, once the falsework has been removed.
Swain Road is scheduled to close the week of October 22, 2012, to vehicle traffic while crews work to widen I-5 in the median at that location.
River Road is scheduled to re-open in March, 2013. The closure has been extended due to a delay in construction activities from flood control oversight activities, the availability of equipment and materials and other construction related issues.
These closures are necessary for the safety of motorists during bridge construction. Because of clearances, and the construction activities, there is not enough vertical clearance under these structures for the installation of falsework unless the road is closed.
Caltrans would like to apologize for the inconvenience caused by closing these roads, but assures you it is necessary in order to complete the widening of I-5 prior to starting on Stage 2 of the project. We appreciate drivers’ patience as we work to improve I-5 through Stockton. —
