RIO VISTA — The California Department of Transportation is advising motorists of nighttime closures of state Highway 160 between Rio Vista and Antioch scheduled for the week of Jan. 6.
A news release from Caltrans said the closure is required for bridge deck and control house rehabilitation at the Three Mile Slough Bridge.
The highway will be closed at Wilbur Avenue, south of the Antioch Toll Bridge, and at the junction of Highway 160 with Highway 12, from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Jan. 6-10.
Roadside message boards will be used to alert motorists of the closures and signed detours will be in place, but some commuters may need to drive as much as an additional 80 miles to reach their destinations.
