Caltrans has scheduled to begin work on increasing the vertical clearance on six bridges that cross over Interstate 80(I-80) in the City of Vallejo just north of the Carquinez Bridge. The bridges are on I-80 just north of the Carquinez Bridge, in this order going northerly (I-80 is officially designated as westbound/eastbound route but travels north and south within Vallejo): Magazine Street, Benicia Road, Georgia Street, Springs Road, Tennessee Street and Redwood Street.
The six bridges do not meet the current vertical clearance design standard of 16 feet 6 inches. Each bridge will be completely closed to local traffic for four months of construction, day and night. Detours will be provided, and extensive public outreach will take place in order to advise the public about the project, the schedule, and the detours.
The bridges will be constructed one at a time, starting with Springs Road, then Magazine Street, Benicia Road, Georgia Street, Tennessee Street, and Redwood Street.
Once all six bridges on I-80 meet the latest standard vertical clearance height, it will accommodate large commercial permit vehicles, so they can continue to safely move freight through I-80, a major freight corridor connecting San Francisco Bay Area to the regions in the north. The bridges will be constructed one at a time, taking about four months each to complete the work. Doing this work now ensures the continued safety of the bridges and prevents the need for more comprehensive and disruptive work in the future.
The steps in increasing the height of the bridges include installing temporary supports, jacking up the superstructure, setting it to its new permanent supports, and modifying the abutments and bridge approaches to accommodate the increased height.
Lane Reductions on I-80
One to two lanes of I-80 will be closed in each direction for construction at night as needed during the construction of each bridge. It may be necessary to briefly close one additional lane intermittently.
I-80 Night Full Closure
I-80 will be completely closed in one direction at a time for four nights to jack the bridge and set the bridge in its new supports.
Each night’s closure will be limited to within a 5-hour window between 11PM to 4 AM. For each bridge then, there will be a total of eight nights of I-80 closure (four nights for each direction) and a total of 48 nights of I-80 closure for the entire two-year duration of construction on six bridges.
I-80 Full Freeway Closure Travel Detour Routes During Jacking and Lowering of Springs Road Bridge.
Eastbound I-80 Detour- From westbound I-780 Connector Ramp to Northbound State Route 29 to eastbound State Route 37 On-Ramp to I-80 Connector Ramp.
Motorists traveling eastbound I-80 are advised to travel westbound I-780, continue westbound on Curtola Parkway, then continue northbound State Route 29(Sonoma Boulevard), to eastbound State Route 37 and enter eastbound I-80.
Westbound I-80 Detour- Westbound State Route 37 On-ramp to Southbound State Route 29 to Eastbound I-780 Connector.
Motorist traveling westbound I-80 are advised to take the westbound State Route 37 on-ramp, continue southbound State Route 29(Sonoma Boulevard), continue eastbound on Curtola Parkway, then continue onto the eastbound I-780 connector and enter westbound I-80.
Springs Road Bridge closed to local traffic beginning October 2020 until January 2021
To ensure worker and public safety, westbound and eastbound Springs Road Bridge will be closed for 4 months in the beginning of October 2020 until mid-January 2021.
Springs Road Bridge Detour Route
Motorist traveling westbound on Springs Road will need to turn right onto Humboldt Street, make a left turn onto westbound Tennessee Street, make another left turn onto southbound Mariposa Street and back to Springs Road.
Motorist traveling eastbound on Springs Road will need to turn left on northbound Mariposa Street, right turn on eastbound Tennessee Street and a right turn onto southbound Humboldt Street to Springs Road.
Roadway safety is at the heart of this project as well as promoting the smooth transport of freight along this vital corridor of I-80.
The bridges are on I-80 just north of the Carquinez Bridge, in the following order going northerly (eastbound): Magazine Street, Benicia Road, Georgia Street, Springs Road, Tennessee Street and Redwood Street.
Construction is estimated to begin as early as summer 2020 and to complete by fall of 2022.
