Teichert wins bid for I-80 paving work

Paving work on the Solano County stretch of Interstate 80 that began in 2008 should be completed in fall 2014 with an upcoming project near Dixon.

This last section is 8.4 miles from near Leisure Town Road in Vacaville to a mile west of Pedrick Road in Dixon. The state Department of Transportation has awarded a $40 million contract to Teichert Construction of Davis. Work will begin next spring and could take more than a year, according to a Solano Transportation Authority news release.

“This is good news, as a number of our residents have asked me when Caltrans will improve the remaining section of I-80,” said Jack Batchelor Jr., Solano Transportation Authority board chairman and mayor of Dixon.

Interstate 80 was built in Solano County during the late 1950s and 1960s along the route of Highway 40. The original concrete slabs used for pavement by 2005 had crumbled in some spots, leading to some teeth-rattling rides for motorists.

Local civic leaders and transportation officials lobbied Caltrans to fix the situation.

In 2008, Caltrans began the repaving project in Vallejo. By 2010, it had added a smooth asphalt overlay for 22 miles from Vallejo through Fairfield to Leisure Town Road in Vacaville.
