SR-121 Sarco Creek Bridge Project
Caltrans started construction of the new SR-121 Sarco Creek Bridge in June 2017. The new bridge replaces the old Sarco Creek Bridge. The old bridge foundation had been scoured due to several decades of current from the creek below and was in need of replacement.
SR-121 Detours Lifted-New Approach Lane Configurations
Motorists on SR-121 should drive with caution as crews switch traffic lanes and remove temporary barricades and detour-related signage approaching the new bridge.
Caltrans thanks you for your patience as we maintain California’s bridges and highways.
