Caltrans Completes Construction One Year Ahead of Schedule
Anticipates Opening New Bridge to Traffic
Monday, November 23 at 6:00 PM
NAPA COUNTY – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has completed construction of the new State Route 29 (SR-29)-Troutdale Creek Bridge one year ahead of the original late 2016 completion date and is now anticipating opening the new bridge to traffic on Monday, November 23 at 6:00 PM. The bridge is in northwest Napa County between Calistoga and Middletown.
Temporary Traffic Signal Light Removal-New Approach Lane Configuration
Motorists on SR-29 should drive with caution as crews switch traffic lanes and remove temporary traffic signal lights approaching the new bridge.
Drivers may also encounter intermittent closures and one-way traffic controls prior to the traffic switch and opening of the new bridge. Please #BeWorkZoneAlert.
SR-29 Troutdale Creek Bridge Project
Caltrans started construction of the new Troutdale Creek Bridge in May 2015. The new bridge replaces the existing Troutdale Creek Bridge with wider northbound and southbound SR-29 bridge approaches. The existing bridge was replaced because of years of wear at its base from the Troutdale Creek. The new bridge approaches have also been realigned to conform to the new bridge, and improve sight-lines for motorists.
