The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is planning an additional, 44- hour, full highway closure of eastbound and westbound State Route 12 (SR12) between SR-160 and Interstate 5 (I-5) for repair work on the Mokelumne River Bridge located at the San Joaquin/ Sacramento County line.
- 44-hour full closure – starting at 10:00 PM on Friday, June 26, through 6:00 PM on Sunday, June 28, 2020, to complete the final polyester concrete overlay, matching the bridge grade to the roadway grade.
Motorists should consider I-5 and I-80 as alternate routes and should allow additional travel time due to the detour. Detour routes are below (an approximate 30-mile, 45- minute detour) and will be posted:
- Traveling Eastbound on SR-12, take SR-160 north to Walnut Grove-Thornton Road to I-5
- Traveling Westbound on SR-12, take I-5 north to Walnut Grove-Thornton Road to SR-160 south
