RIO VISTA – Caltrans reminds motorists that the Rio Vista Bridge on State Route 12 is scheduled for continued partial overnight closures this week for ongoing maintenance work.
The bridge remains safe for travel. A Caltrans contractor and structural engineers continue second phase work of the project as the painting phase is nearing completion.
The bridge will be under longterm nightly one-way traffic control from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Friday.
The second phase of the project will refurbish mechanical parts considered worn and due for replacement. This will include replacing electrical equipment, elevator parts and the restroom facilities.
Expect delays up to 20-25 minutes depending on traffic volumes and the number of bridge lifts for waterway traffic. Current truck restrictions will apply. California legal trucks having a kingpin-to-rear-axle of more than 30 feet are not recommended on State Route 160.
Weather conditions could delay or cancel scheduled work. Caltrans advises motorists to “Be Work Zone Alert.”
For motorists using the State Route 84 Real McCoy and SR-220 Ryer Island Ferries as a bridge detour, additional ferry information is located on our Caltrans Delta Ferries website here.
