      Information provided by Caltrans: Shannon Brinias, Caltrans, (510) 286-5543

      Caltrans is conducting work to provide guardrail upgrades on Interstate 80 (I-80) eastbound between Ashby Avenue and University Avenue in Berkeley in Alameda County. The work will replace the current temporary concrete railing (Type K) with concrete barrier. The project involves replacing approximately 5,400 linear feet of barrier on I-80 eastbound between Ashby Avenue and University Avenue, just west of the Berkeley Aquatic Park. The work will be completed in four stages. The construction work itself will not require lane closures; however placement and removal of protective k-rail during the staging of work will require occasional night lane closures. Portions of the right shoulder of eastbound I-80 between Ashby Avenue and University Avenue will be closed for the duration of the project (July 2017 through January 2018).

      During these closures, motorists will be unable to utilize the outer shoulder of I-80 EB. Traffic delays and construction noise may be associated with the closures. Caltrans Traffic Advisory - May 26, 2017 (.pdf)

      July 19, 2017 Update - Caltrans will close on/off ramps and lanes at various locations along Interstate 80 (I-80) eastbound (EB) for temporary K-Rail installation operation from Wednesday night, July 19th through Friday morning, July 21st, 2017, during the hours of 10:00 PM to 5:00 AM on both days.

      Closure schedule is as follows:

      • July 19 and 20th (10:00 PM to 5:00 AM): lane #5 closed on EB I-80 between Potter Street on-ramp and University Avenue off-ramp
      • Ramp closures: Potter Street on-ramp to EB I-80; State Route 13 (SR-13) (Ashby Avenue) on-ramp to EB I-80 and University Avenue off-ramp in Berkeley

      Detour information is as follows:

      • Potter Street On-Ramp Closure: use northbound (NB) Shellmound Street to EB 67th Street to southbound (SB) Hollis Street to westbound (WB) Powell Street; use Powell Street on-ramp to enter EB I-80
      • SR-13 (Ashby Avenue) On-Ramp Closure: use WB I-80 Ashby Avenue on-ramp to WB I-80 to Powell Street off-ramp to EB Powell Street; use Powell Street on-ramp to enter EB I-80.
      • University Avenue Off-Ramp Closure: use EB I-80 to exit at Gilman Street to WB Gilman Street to on-ramp to WB I-80 exit at University Avenue
