Major Safety Improvements Get Started


Crews will restripe Sunset Avenue north of Railroad Avenue on Friday (July 18) in preparation for a six-month construction project to improve traffic flow on this major entrance to Suisun City and install new safety enhancements ordered by the City Council at the railroad crossing.

Working in partnership with the City of Fairfield, the Suisun City Public Works Department will oversee the installation of new synchronized traffic signals, additional traffic lanes, center medians and other roadway improvements. At the same time, a new 36-inch water line for the City of Fairfield will be installed to improve Fairfield’s water system.

The project will require traffic to be re-routed to one side of the roadway while work is performed on the other. Significant traffic delays of up to 25 minutes are anticipated.

Starting Monday, traffic lights on Sunset Avenue at East Travis Blvd. and Railroad Avenue will be set to require three-way stops. Drivers are urged to plan ahead or use alternate routes to avoid the construction zone.
