Highway 160 – Three-Mile Slough Bridge Paint Project

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) continues to work on the Three-Mile Slough Bridge paint project on State Highway 160 south of Rio Vista and State Highway 12. Motorists are being advised of major delays with up to one hour wait times at the construction site and possible additional delays due to the raising of the drawbridge for maritime traffic.

One-way traffic control continues to be in effect 24 hours a day, seven days a week for north- and southbound directions. This will continue into late July 2016. Motorists travelling on westbound Sherman Island East Levee Road to northbound State Highway 160 at the bridge will continue to face right-turn lane restrictions. Traffic signals with the use of cameras are installed and will be activated to replace the flaggers at a later date.

Caltrans secured the bridge to be closed to marine traffic from January 5, 2016 through April 10, 2016 due to construction below the lift span.

A planned detour for local automobile traffic will use West Sherman Island Levee Road.

The purpose of the project is to maintain and preserve the steel components of Three Mile Slough Bridge. The work will prevent further deterioration on the bridge steel structural members, as well as the mechanical components of the operating lift system.
