SOLANO COUNTY— The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is continuing construction of the new Midway Road Bridge above eastbound and westbound Interstate-80 (I-80). The bridge is located in rural Solano County just east of Downtown Vacaville.
Starting Saturday, Feb. 10, Caltrans and its contractor are scheduled to remove the existing bridge falsework over I-80.
To ensure worker and public safety during the work, a full highway closure will be in effect on eastbound and westbound I-80 at Midway Road starting Saturday, Feb. 10 at 11 p.m. until Sunday, Feb. 11 at 8 a.m.
Motorists traveling on eastbound I-80 at Midway Road will have a short detour onto adjacent auxiliary lanes and back onto eastbound I-80.
Motorists traveling on westbound I-80 at Midway Road will be taken off I-80 at Midway Road, then detoured southbound onto North Meridian Street, then re-enter westbound I-80 from North Meridian.
Detour signs will be posted. CHP will help direct motorists.
Caltrans advises drivers to allow for extra time and expect delays. All work is weather dependent.
Midway Bridge long-term closure
The Midway Bridge will remain CLOSED until the new Midway Bridge is completed as early as spring 2018. Local detours remain in effect.
The project will demolish and rebuild the Midway Road Bridge. The work seismically retrofits the bridge and brings it up to the latest seismic safety standards.
During the construction of the new Midway Road Bridge, the Meridian Road Bridge above I-80 and just west of the Midway Road Bridge will remain open and serve as a general detour.
Residents and businesses near the Midway Bridge may temporarily experience increased construction noise.
