FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Highway 12-Rio Vista Bridge
One-Way Traffic Controls-Mandatory Inspections
Start Tuesday, February 16, 2016
Solano and Sacramento Counties – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will perform mandatory inspections of the Rio Vista Bridge on State Route 12 (SR-12) between Solano and Sacramento Counties.
The four days of inspections are scheduled each day starting Tuesday, February 16 through Friday, February 19. Crews will start the inspections beginning at 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM daily. All work is weather permitting.
The inspections are part of Caltrans’ preventive maintenance plan on the bridge.
To ensure public and worker safety, one-way traffic controls will be in effect. Crews will alternate lane closures in both eastbound and westbound directions. This will allow one lane on the bridge to remain open during the work. Flaggers will help direct traffic.
Motorists should expect delays and allow for extra travel time.
For boat and ship traffic, the bridge will operate normally for any vessels passing underneath it along the Sacramento River.
Caltrans thanks you for your patience as we work to maintain California’s highways and bridges. Please #BeWorkZoneAlert.
