City: night paving to close lanes on Sunrise Blvd, May 1-2

A section of Sunrise Boulevard in Citrus Heights will have night-time lane closures on both May 1 and May 2 to allow for paving operations, according to City officials.

Beginning Sunday at 8 p.m. and continuing through 6 a.m. the following day, Sunrise Boulevard will be reduced to one lane in each direction, from Antelope Road to the border of Roseville.

The closures will repeat Monday night at 8 p.m. and will continue through the following day at 6 a.m., according to a public announcement made by Mayor Jeannie Bruins during an April 28 city council meeting. She said traffic delays are expected.

In a news release about the lane closures, the City acknowledged the “challenges and inconvenience commuters, residents, businesses, bicyclists and pedestrians will experience during the roadwork” and said “patience is appreciated.”

The statement also said a 25 mph construction-zone speed limit will be “strictly enforced” and will remain in effect during the paving and throughout the duration of the project.
