Eastbound I-80 traffic will be detoured off the freeway at the Willow Avenue exit and then right at the end of the ramp onto Willow Avenue west and then onto westbound Parker Avenue and from Parker Avenue to northbound San Pablo Avenue and then back onto eastbound I-80 from San Pablo on-ramp to eastbound I-80 in Crockett.
