Long-Term Meridian Bridge Closure with Detours
During the long-term closure of the I-80 Meridian Road Bridge, nearby residents and businesses are advised to use the I-80 Midway Road Bridge just east of the Meridian Bridge as a general detour.
Westbound I-80 Overnight Closure and Detours

To ensure public and worker safety, during the one-night, partial demolition of the Meridian Bridge, a full overnight closure of westbound and eastbound I-80 between Meridian Road and Midway Road will be in effect Saturday, May 20 at 11:00 PM until Sunday, May 21 at 8:00 AM.
A short detour onto frontage roads near the bridge will be in effect. Detour signs will be posted. CHP will assist with traffic controls. \
This project will retrofit the existing Meridian Road Bridge and will eventually demolish and rebuild the Midway Road Bridge. The work will seismically retrofit these bridges and bring them up to the latest seismic safety standards.
