A six-mile stretch of westbound Interstate 80 will be closed for more than four days starting the night of Thursday, Aug. 31.

The map above shows the closure in red: westbound lanes from Interstate 780 in Vallejo to Highway 4 in Hercules.

Drivers will be rerouted on a 24-mile detour over the Benicia-Martinez Bridge (blue line on map).

The closure will be in effect from 9 p.m. Thursday to 5 a.m. Tuesday.

The closure will allow repaving of two lanes, the California Department of Transportation said. The complete closure of the road means the project will be completed months sooner than it would with intermittent and partial closures, the agency said.
