Starting Sunday night, southbound Highway 99 will be completely closed daily from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. to repair the Collier Road overcrossing.
Drivers will be directed off the Collier Road exit, south along the west frontage road, then back onto the highway at Jahant Road.
The work will last each night through Friday and will repair damage to the overpass.
Traffic will be reduced to one lane starting at 9 p.m., with the full closure to happen two hours later.
The California Department of Transportation expects the detour to delay traffic by about 15 minutes. Caltrans officials also recommend that big rig drivers instead take Interstate 5.
The $167,000 project is being overseen by Christie Constructors, Inc., of Richmond.
Lodi judge named to law school hall of fame
Lodi judge and former mayor David P. Warner will be inducted today the hall of fame at Humphreys College's Laurence Drivon School of Law.
The Lodi native is one of four law school graduates receiving the honor, which the school is awarding for the second year.
Warner graduated from Lodi Union High School in 1967, then received a bachelor's degree in police science and administration from California State University, Sacramento. He graduated from Humphreys in 1975 and was admitted to the California State Bar that year.
Warner worked in for two law firms, then opened his own practice in 1980.
He was elected to the Lodi City Council in 1994, then became mayor in 1995, the first Humphreys graduate to do so. He was appointed a judgeship in 1997 by Gov. Pete Wilson.
As a judge, he served on a statewide judicial ethics committee for three years, for which members were given the 2007 President's Award. He is one of two judges in Lodi, where he handles criminal, civil and traffic cases.
Warner is also active in his church and the Lodi Tokay Rotary Club, where he previously served as president.
Also named to the hall of fame were Modesto attorney Louis F. "Bud" Gianelli; former San Joaquin County prosecutor Cruz F. Portillo, the first Hispanic graduate from Humphreys; and Dr. Richard Nickerson, who spent 20 years as a surgeon before going to law school.
