?? Help with Sacto Airport Hwy Approach??
Have checked various info websites, but still not clear about traffic impact on I-5 to SMF (Sac Inter. Airport). We are catching a plane Tues morning and usually drive through Davis/Woodland Hwy 113 to I-5 to the airport. With the I-5 construction will there be any delay or problem for us tomorrow morning? Thanks.

Good question elnap, from I-80 we have always taken Hwy 113 to 1-5 also. But I did hear on one of the Sacramento TV stations about the I-5 construction. Maybe if you call the Sacramento Chamber of Commerce they could advise you if no locals post your needed information.

elnap, here is the St. of CA website, I hope it is of some help.

I don't think you will have a problem. Only real hang up is on I-5 downtown in the "boat" area. If you hit I-5 north of the airport, no problemo. If you come in from I-80 to Reno and then onto I-5 you totally miss the constuction.

I-5 north of town and near the 113 junction/Woodland is not in any way impacted by the construction project.

The work is all in downtown Sac.

Web site refers to highway 50 and Richards Blvd--which
. are in downtown area..The part of I-5 that you will use
is not effected.
I love this airport....

You will be fine. The only portion closed is right in downtown Sacto. Here is a link to the fix I-5 website:

Have a fun trip.

Not that it will effect your drive, but the local news said that CALTRANS just said they will not open the SB until 1:00 PM on Thursday rather than 8:30 AM Tuesday.

Apparently, the heat this last week had slowed down the process so they need more time to finish.

Stage 4, the north bound will now close at 8:00 PM on Friday instead of Thursday.

All times are GMT -8. The time now is 08:39 AM.
