Cordelia Road closed Thursday & Friday


SUISUN CITY — Suisun City Public Works crews will temporarily close Cordelia Road at the Union Pacific Railroad crossing at about noon Thursday, June 26, for continued installation of major track and traffic improvements.

Cordelia Road is expected to be closed entirely from noon Thursday, June 26, until about 5 p.m. Friday, June 27, to allow Union Pacific crews to finish replacing the road’s railroad crossing as part of a major Union Pacific track improvement project.

Drivers are encouraged to avoid the Cordelia Road crossing entirely by using these alternate routes:
  • Eastbound traffic on Cordelia Road should travel north on Pennsylvania Avenue, turn right onto Highway 12 and exit at Civic Center Boulevard (bearing right toward Main Street) to access the Suisun City Waterfront District.
  • Westbound traffic should travel north on Main Street to westbound Highway 12 then turn left at Pennsylvania Avenue and right at Cordelia Road.
An interactive map showing alternate routes is available on the City's main web site.

Union Pacific is installing 40,000 new track ties and upgrading bridges between Suisun City and Martinez as second installment of a multi-year upgrade project between Sacramento and Oakland that will keep the railroad in good condition so trains can operate reliably.

The rail crossing will be replaced by Union Pacific with custom concrete and metal panels laid flush with the rails to ensure a smooth and consistent roadway for motorists. Suisun City Public Works will assist Union Pacific with this critical work.

The railroad improvement project is funded by Union Pacific.
