Traffic Alert Affecting CalSTRS West Sacramento Headquarters and Member Service Center
From April through June 2014, Caltrans is rehabilitating a section of U.S. Highway 50 in Sacramento, both eastbound and westbound directions, with a five-day break for the Memorial Day holiday. This project is called Fix50, and it will affect individuals visiting CalSTRS’ headquarters and Member Service Center in West Sacramento. All work on the project will run 24 hours a day.
What Does Fix50 Mean to You?
There will be partial lane closures on U.S. Highway 50 in Sacramento between 18th and 24th Streets over the next three months, plus various ramp closures, which could mean significant traffic delays, especially during peak hours.
If you are planning on visiting CalSTRS’ headquarters or Member Service Center in West Sacramento between April through June, you are encouraged to plan your route ahead of time by examining the roadway construction maps provided by Caltrans. If possible, you may want to take alternate forms of transportation, such as bus, light rail and bicycle, to avoid major delays.

Eastbound U.S. Highway 50: April 22–May 15
- Phase 1: April 22 through May 1. Only three lanes open.
- Phase 2: May 2 through May 15. Only three lanes open. The following ramps will be closed:
