FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Highway 121-Capell Creek Bridge
Increased Construction Traffic
Motorists Should Expect Delays-Friday, August 8, 2014
NAPA COUNTY – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is continuing work to replace the Highway 121-Capell Creek Bridge in Napa County. The bridge is located on Highway 121 approximately 17 miles northeast of Downtown Napa.
Motorists may encounter slow-traffic on Highway 121 on and approaching the Capell Creek Bridge as construction trucks will be delivering materials to the project site on Friday, August 8 between 6 a.m. and 4 p.m.
The project will replace the existing Capell Creek Bridge, which has become worn over time, with a new single-span bridge.
To ensure public and worker safety, one-way traffic controls will remain in effect on the bridge and its approaches on Highway 121 in northeast Napa County during regular work with flaggers on-site during the busy delivery of materials on Friday, August 8.
Normal construction hours are Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m.
During one-way traffic controls, crews will alternate closures on northbound and southbound Highway 121 near the Capell Creek Bridge to allow one-lane of traffic to proceed at a time. During the traffic controls, one lane of traffic will remain open at all times.
Please slow for flaggers and construction crews. Motorists should expect delays and allow for extra travel time.
