RIO VISTA — A threat of rain has prompted the state Department of Transportation to cancel overnight closures for Highway 160 between Rio Vista and Antioch until at least March 14.
Workers on Feb. 3 began replacing the bridge deck and rehabilitating the control house on Three Mile Slough Bridge at a cost of $3 million. The contractor has up to 55 consecutive nights of authorized closures to complete the work. Closures take place from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. from Wilbur Avenue south of the Antioch Toll Bridge to Highway 12 at the Rio Vista Bridge, weather permitting.
When closures are in place, some motorists must take a detour as long at 80 miles to reach their destinations, a Caltrans press release said.
