Sunday morning's closure will be at the same location from 2 to 5 a.m. westbound and 2 to 6 a.m. eastbound.
Westbound drivers will be detoured at Lone Tree to 18th Street and back on the freeway at L Street. Eastbound motorists will be detoured at Contra Loma and down Fitzuren Road and Putnam Street to Lone Tree.
