FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
State Route 29-Napa River Bridge in Calistoga
Utility Work on Bridge
Overnight Full Highway Closures Three Consecutive Nights
Starts Tuesday, April 24, 2018
NAPA COUNTY – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) working closely with PG&E will close the State Route 29 (SR-29) Napa River Bridge also known as the Lincoln Avenue Bridge in Downtown Calistoga during three consecutive nights to perform utility relocation work on the bridge. The closures start Tuesday, April 24, 2018.
The work is related to the construction of the new SR-29 Napa River Bridge.
Night Closures on SR-29 in Calistoga
During utility relocation, southbound SR-29 will be closed at Washington Street and northbound SR-29 will be closed at State Route 128 (SR-128) for three consecutive nights.
SR-29 will be closed each night Tuesday, April 24, Wednesday, April 25 and Thursday, April 26 starting at 9:00 PM each night until 7:00 AM the following mornings.
SR-29 Detours During Night Closures
Motorists traveling southbound SR-29/Lincoln Avenue (from Calistoga towards Napa) will be detoured starting at Washington Street in Calistoga to northbound SR-29, left on Tubbs Lane, onto eastbound SR-128 then re-enter southbound SR-29 from SR-128.
Motorists traveling northbound SR-29 (from Napa towards Calistoga) will be detoured onto the continuation of northbound SR-29 onto westbound SR-128, right onto Tubbs Lane and re-enter northbound SR-29 from Tubbs Lane.
SR-29 Napa River Bridge Project
Construction of the new SR-29 Napa River Bridge started in July 2017. The new bridge replaces the old Napa River Bridge which was in need of replacement after its foundation was scoured due to constant river current. The new bridge is being built in stages allowing motorists to travel on the bridge during construction.
Detours signs will be posted. All work is weather permitting.
Construction of new SR-29 Napa River Bridge in Calistoga could be completed as early as winter 2018.
Caltrans thanks you for your patience as we maintain California’s bridges and highways.
