Construction Work on Cottonwood Creek Bridge

Cottonwood Creek Bridge

April 6, 2022: 


Caltrans District 2 and Golden State Bridge, Inc. are currently conducting nighttime joint replacement and asphalt concrete grinding operations on sections of the Cottonwood Creek Bridge on Interstate 5 near the Tehama/Shasta County line.

Motorists should currently plan for alternating lanes closures on northbound and southbound sections of Interstate 5 at Cottonwood Creek Bridge, Monday - Friday nights between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. daily. Lane closures will take place on one lane in one direction at a time to limit traffic impacts.

Motorists are advised to slow down and drive carefully in the area. Delays for work this week are anticipated to be minimal, due to traffic volumes during nighttime hours on the interstate. Delays may be longer if traffic incidents are associated. Motorists are urged to remain on the freeway and not use local roads to bypass construction efforts and traffic delays. Law enforcement personnel will be present in the area.

24/7 highway conditions, including areas of road work and traffic delays, can be found on QuickMap. Information and updates can also be found on the District 2 Facebook and Twitter pages. Please slow down and drive carefully in and around work zones and watch for personnel working.

This work and scheduling are subject to change at any time due to weather conditions, overnight temperatures, or other factors. Caltrans and contractor are currently planning for night work for the remainder of these operations.
