Caltrans Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Facility

I-80 Eastbound Cordelia

Landmark Construction partnered with a heavy civil contractor and delivered the building portion of this project which involved the construction of this one hundred million dollar Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Facility for the California Highway Patrol. This high profile truck inspection facility and California Highway Patrol station is the newest and most modern Caltrans facility in Northern California, incorporating advanced inspection technology that will serve nearly 10,000 trucks per day, improving traffic safety and travel time.

A new Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Facility (CVEF) was constructed to replace the existing outdated facility which was causing delays on the I-80 due to its inefficiencies. The facility was designed to allow rapid and thorough inspection of commercial trucks and trailers, along with providing other Caltrans facilities and offices.

The new 25,000 SF LEED Silver facility is located in Fairfield and comprises of a completely new site which includes a full CHP police station with bullet-proof construction and a detention unit, 7 truck inspection bays with high-speed doors, automatic controls, and ‘weight-in-motion scales’. The inspection pits have hydronic radiant heating, LED inspection lighting, high-efficiency ventilation, and automatic covers protecting them when not in use. Construction also included a new extended off-ramp from I-80, braided on-ramps to I-80 and Route 12, 2 bridges and retaining walls, and state of the art sorting technology.
