Plan Ahead: Downtown Detours on March 10-11 and 24-26

Beginning Friday, March 10 at 8:00 p.m., J Street will close as teams prepare for a DOCO Milestone – the first crane supporting the construction of the mixed-use tower will be removed. J Street will remain closed as work will continue through the weekend to impact commuters minimally. J Street will reopen on Sunday, March 12 in the evening, before Monday’s commute.

While we apologize for the inconvenience, we want to offer our help in finding an alternate route. In working with all of our partners at the City of Sacramento, Sacramento Police Department, and the construction teams working on the mixed-use tower, the closure will begin after Friday’s tip-off at 8 p.m. to reduce commuter impact.  

To avoid congestion and detours, plan your route to Golden 1 Center in advance by visiting GetHereSac.com for additional routes and SacPark.org to plan and reserve parking.

You can also find your way to Golden 1 Center on Regional Transit or a rideshare service. If you plan to ride your bike, don’t forget about our complimentary bike valet at Cesar Chavez Park.

Check out these alternative routes to Golden 1 Center and more information below.
