The closure is needed to safely install a temporary bridge adjacent to the existing Saratoga Creek Bridge. The temporary bridge will allow SR-9 to remain open during the rehabilitation of Saratoga Creek Bridge.

This road closure is taking place now to keep pace with an accelerated schedule to complete the overall project by the end of the year and reduce the duration of impact to traffic and the community. The overall goal of the project is to safely rehabilitate the Saratoga Creek Bridge so that the bridge can continue to provide connectivity to SR-9 in the event of an earthquake. Project is scheduled to be complete December 2023.
