That is still the schedule but those dates are always subject to change depending on the availability of funding.

Update from Construction Equipment Guide:


--- Quote --- Overseen by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), the $480 million Fix50 project will see a long-awaited upgrade of the busy section of Highway 50, a key corridor in mid-town and East Sacramento (Sacramento County), with the addition of high-occupancy vehicle lanes; widening of 12 bridges; and newly-built retaining walls.

"This is one of the largest projects in the Sacramento region, one of the largest projects we've seen in a very long time," said Angela DaPrato, public information officer of Caltrans District 3.

It's an improvement.

It's a little frustrating that fairly extensive work was done on the W-X Freeway segment just a few years ago, and now it looks like some of that work is being torn up as part of the current project.  Reno has something similar going on with I-580/US 395 as there was a big widening project a few years back between I-80 and the airport and now it's under construction again as part of the Spaghetti Bowl work.

The physical barrier between eastbound lanes is unusual.  Not unheard of in California as the Caldecott Tunnel has had that for decades.  I did make a point of driving the eastbound "express lanes" last time I went through a couple weeks ago.
