Highway 37 Reopens after Railroad Crossing Repairs



State Route 37 in North Bay Reopens at 4:00 AM Sunday, May 21,

Seven Hours Ahead of Schedule

Repair of railroad tracks moved forward without a hitch


SONOMA COUNTY - Caltrans has reopened Highway 37 seven hours ahead of schedule as work crews finished repairs on the Sonoma Marin Area Rail Transit (SMART) tracks that crossed Route 37 just east of Hwy 121 (Arnold Drive) near Sears Point. 

Track ReplacementAn 11-mile section of Highway 37 was closed between Walnut Avenue in Vallejo and Highway 121 (Arnold Drive) near Sears Point in Sonoma County to allow SMART’s contractor to replace railroad tracks just east of Highway 121.  

The closure started at 3:00 AM Saturday, May 20, and was scheduled to last until 11:00 AM Sunday, May 21. But the subgrade below the tracks proved less challenging than anticipated, saving hours of work, and allowing Caltrans to reopen the highway much earlier than expected.
