RIO VISTA — A threat of rain has prompted the state to cancel through this Sunday the road work it is doing at the Three Mile Slough Bridge on State Highway 160 between Rio Vista and Antioch.
The state Department of Transportation 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. But it will postpone the closures when the forecast calls for rain, a Caltrans press release said.
Caltrans is 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, the press release said.
