PLACER COUNTY — Caltrans is alerting motorists and community members that an extended closure is planned next month for the northbound State Highway 65 off-ramp to Stanford Ranch Road and Galleria Boulevard because of roadway construction.
A contractor plans to close the exit starting at 10 p.m. Sunday, April 21 through 5 a.m. Thursday, April 25. Motorist are advised to allow extra travel time to reach their destination.
Roadside and fixed overhead message boards will remind motorists about the upcoming closure. During the closure, signs will direct motorists to the following detour route:
- Take the northbound Highway 65 exit to Pleasant Grove Boulevard.
- Turn left onto westbound Pleasant Grove.
- Take the freeway entrance to southbound Highway 65.
