When/Where: Starting Tuesday, May 31 at 7 a.m. until Friday, June 3 at 5 p.m., Gerber Road -- from Power Inn Road to French Road -- will be closed to through traffic. This closure has been requested by Union Pacific Railroad for urgent repairs needed for sections of railroad tracks. Information about the closure and detours is as follows:
• The closure will impact all westbound and eastbound through traffic on Gerber Road
-- between Power Inn Road & French Road -- including vehicles, pedestrians and bicycles.
• The full closure of Gerber Road will only occur at the Union Pacific Railroad crossing between Reese Road and French Road. Access for local property owners and residents will be maintained at all times.
Increased Travel Time & Detours: Through traffic is advised to avoid this area during the closure period as there will be significant impacts to all roadway users. Roadway users are advised to use alternative routes until project work is completed (see detour map on back). Detour signs and electronic message boards will be in place to alert motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists about the temporary road closure.
Construction Activities: Project work includes Union Pacific Railroad making urgent repairs to sections of railroad tracks. County maintenance crews will also repair adjacent sections of pavement on Gerber Road on the east and west sides of the railroad tracks.
Closure Period: Sacramento County understands the challenges and inconveniences that commuters, residents, businesses, bicyclists and pedestrians will experience during the closure period and asks for patience and cooperation as we work to complete this project.
