FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Weekend Closures Cancelled for State Highway 160 due to wet Weather Forecast
SACRAMENTO COUNTY – The threat of more wet weather has prompted the cancellation of overnight closures for this week and part of next week on State Highway 160 between Rio Vista and Antioch, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) announced today. Three Mile Slough Bridge will be open until at least Friday, March 14.
Work started February 3 on the $2.98 million project at Three Mile Slough Bridge to replace the bridge deck and rehabilitate the control house. The contractor has been authorized for up to 55 consecutive nights of closures to complete the work. Caltrans advises local motorists and residents to follow us on social media for the latest schedule updates.
The highway is scheduled to be closed nightly 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 in Rio Vista, weather permitting. Roadside message boards will be used to alert motorists of the closures and signed detours will be in place, but some motorists may need to drive as much as an additional 80 miles, or about two extra hours, to reach their destination.
