The California Department of Transportation will start repairing portions of Interstate 680 in Concord in September, a process expected to alter traffic patterns and make noise.
Crews will be conducting repairs between Monument Boulevard in Concord and the intersection where State Route 242 and I-630 split in Pleasant Hill every day for several months.
Workers will be on the roads from 8 p.m. -5 a.m. Monday through Friday, as well as on Saturdays from 9 p.m.-9a.m.
“Residents should expect to hear this work for several nights per week, until the work is completed,” said Adam Priest, Caltrans spokesperson, in a statement. “Caltrans will monitor the noise and will work with the contractor to minimize the impact to residents,” Priest said.
The crews will be demolishing concrete slabs and replacing them. After this, workers will grind down the roadway to make it smooth, according to Priest.
Drivers should expect to see lanes closed and detours put into place.
