Drivers in the East Bay will face increased traffic this weekend during the Caltrans closure of southbound lanes on Interstate 680 in San Ramon for repaving.

The partial closure of southbound I-680 between Alcosta Blvd. in San Ramon and the I-580/I-680 connector in Pleasanton is closing lanes for a total of 55 hours. During the closures the three left lanes of southbound I-680 will be closed and the two right lanes will remain open. 

Additionally, northbound I-680 will have the far-left express lane and left shoulder closed between Amador Valley Blvd. in Dublin and Alcosta Blvd. in San Ramon.
