CDCR’s Office of Employee Wellness advises employees commuting to the downtown Sacramento area that there will be major traffic disruption starting April 22 as Caltrans launches a major construction project for the so-called W/X Viaduct.

CalTrans is scheduled to rehabilitate a section of the freeway known as the W/X Viaduct (see map below). Work is currently scheduled to begin April 22 and conclude in late June. During that time, the project will have a major impact on motorists and could add significant travel time to your morning and evening commutes until the project is completed.

Please visit for the latest information on when construction will begin, travel impacts, and detours so that you can adjust your commute accordingly.
