Weather forecast prompts Highway 160 road work delay

By From page A6 | March 26, 2014

RIO VISTA — A threat of rain prompted the state Department of Transportation to cancel planned overnight closures this week for Highway 160 between Rio Vista and Antioch.

The scheduled overnight closures were called off Tuesday through Thursday.

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.
