TRAFFIC ADVISORY

Date: January 17, 2017
District: 4 - Oakland
Contact: Bob Haus
Phone: 510/286-5576

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

State Route 113-Solano County
Closed Due to Flood Damage
Estimated to Reopen
January 17, 2017 at 10:00 PM

SOLANO COUNTY – State Route 113 (SR-113) between Creed Road and Hay Road which was closed during last week’s storms is now estimated to be reopened by 10:00 PM on Tuesday, January 17. The closure is just south of the City of Dixon in unincorporated Solano County.
SR-113 has been closed since January 11 after a section of the roadway flooded. Caltrans was able to repair an adjacent culvert and repair that initial section of roadway on Monday, January 16.

However, a second storm-damaged section of highway was discovered nearby. That second section was undermined by water. Caltrans is now pouring cement to shore-up that second damaged section and is working to complete repairs and possibly reopen SR-113 by the night of January 17.
During the closure, motorists are advised to use State Route 12 (SR-12) and Interstate 80 (I-80) as alternate routes between Fairfield/Dixon/Vacaville and the Delta region.

Drivers should expect delays and if possible take alternate routes.

Signage will provide 72-hour notice prior to any parking restrictions. Work will be conducted in phases at individual locations; in those areas, motorists may face traffic delays. Pending permit approval, work will be conducted according to the schedule below:

• Work impacting the eastbound parking lane will take place from 7:00 AM until 3:00 PM weekdays (Monday through Friday).

• Work impacting the westbound parking lane will take place from 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM weekdays (Monday through Friday).

The project work begins Monday January 16 2017 and is anticipated to be completed in March 2017. All work is weather dependent.
