FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Overnight Closures Coming Up on Highway 160 for Work on Three Mile Slough Bridge
SACRAMENTO COUNTY – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is advising motorists to expect nearly two months of overnight closures on State Highway 160 between Rio Vista and Antioch starting in early February.
The closure is required for a $2.98 million bridge deck and control house rehabilitation project at Three Mile Slough Bridge. Starting Monday, February 3, and continuing for up to 55 days, the highway will be closed from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. at Wilbur Avenue, south of the Antioch Toll Bridge, and at the junction with State Highway 12.
Roadside message boards will be used to alert motorists of the closures and signed detours will be in place, but some commuters may need to drive as much as an additional 80 miles, or about two extra hours, to reach their destination.
In the meantime, motorists can expect one-way traffic control at Three Mile Slough Bridge from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday for scheduled bridge work.
