By From page A3 | March 05, 2014

RIO VISTA — The threat of rain prompted the state Department of Transportation this week to cancel nighttime road closure on state Highway 160 south of Rio Vista.

Caltrans over the next two months plans to close Highway 160 each night from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. from the junction with Highway 12 to Wilbur Avenue south of the Antioch Bridge. Caltrans canceled the planned road work starting Monday and continuing through Saturday. Closures are to resume at 8 p.m. Sunday.

Workers are renovating the Three Mile Slough bridge deck and control house at a cost of $3 million. Detours could cause some motorists to drive an extra 80 miles to reach their destinations, according to Caltrans.
