There is significant construction on I-5 (going to run a couple of years) that has it down to 1 lane in several places. If you hit it at the right times (late at night, mid week, etc) you can typically be okay, but at other times the backup can be pretty significant (8-10 miles). If you turn at the 46 you'll miss all the trouble (and Lost Hills has the best fuel prices you'll likely see, so it's a good place to top off).

I agree.

Arrived Vegas

Well we got into the Oais campground at 12:45 am, we ended up going Ca 12 from Napa across to I-5 to 46 to 99 to 58 & I-5 to Vegas.
The only thing I would change is Ca 12 from I-80 to I-5, I should have went 80 east to Sacramento to catch 5. 12 is okay for about 25 miles then it's really rough narrow 2 lane, I think any time I saved was wasted trying to stay in the seat going 30 mph.
I-5 was good, as was 46, 99 was in poor condition & I think everybody was avoiding the construction on 5.
Only other note is if you have a choice to go to Vegas at a different time than Friday night take the alternate.
We leave for the Grand Canyon on Monday.
Any suggestion would be appreciated.
Takes for all the replys.

Mext time consider Taking 37 from 101 to I 80. I 80 for about 3 miles then 780 toward Martinez connecting to 680 South to 580 in Pleasonton which will connect you to I 5 below Tracy. Sounds difficult but is easy. Only 2 lane is the stretch of 37 to I 80.
