FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
State Route 29-Troutdale Creek Bridge
Between Calistoga and Middletown
New Lane Configuration & Traffic Signal Activation
Starts Thursday, June 4
NAPA COUNTY – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is starting construction of the State Route 29 (SR-29)-Troutdale Creek Bridge Replacement Project in northwest Napa County between Calistoga and Middletown.
One-Way Traffic Controls-Start June 4
To ensure worker and public safety, motorists approaching the Troutdale Creek Bridge will be routed onto one lane with alternating traffic controlled by a traffic signal.
During one-way traffic controls, one lane of traffic will remain open at all times with flaggers alternating northbound and southbound traffic until the traffic signal is installed. The signal will be activated approximately the afternoon of Thursday, June 4, and will be in operation until further notice. Crews will also restripe the lanes approaching the bridge. All work is weather permitting.
Motorists should allow for extra travel time, and watch for the new signal light, and new lane configuration on SR-29 approaching the bridge. Please #BeWorkZoneAlert.
SR-29 Troutdale Creek Bridge Project
Caltrans will replace the existing Troutdale Creek Bridge with a new bridge and widen the northbound and southbound SR-29 bridge approaches. The existing bridge must be replaced because of years of wear at its base from the Troutdale Creek. The bridge approaches will also be realigned to conform to the new bridge, and improve sight-lines for motorists. The project is scheduled to be completed as early as late 2016.
