What's Being Planned - Long Term

This multi-year, multi-phase project is located in Solano County. The southwest project limits are near Fairfield's Green Valley and Cordelia neighborhoods, the northeast project limits near Suisun City.Interchange Segment 1 Coming Soon Sign

Once completed, the project will improve safety and travel times for motorists on I-80, I-680, Highway 12 and adjacent city streets. Features include a realignment of I-680, an improved direct connector route between I-80 and Highway 12, construction of new interchange overcrossings, new entrance/exit ramps, bike and pedestrian safety improvements, and the extension of some local streets leading to I-80 and Highway 12.
