    Caltrans to begin work on Interstate 80 Six Bridges Project
    Highway lane closures and detour routes are planned

    Springs Road Detour Starting October 2020  
    Solano County - Caltrans will begin construction on the Interstate 80 Six Bridges Project in Vallejo. Crews will increase the vertical clearance on six overcrossings 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 north: 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 March of 2024. The bridges will be increased one at a time, starting with Springs Road. Springs Road at I-80 will remain closed until construction is completed as early as mid-January 2021
    To ensure worker and public safety, northbound and southbound Springs Road will be closed at WB Interstate 80 for 4 months in the beginning of October 2020 until mid-January 2021.

    Springs Road Bridge Detour Route
    Westbound Detour:
    Motorists 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.

    Eastbound Detour:
    Motorists 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. Motorists should expect delays and watch for detour signs. The California Highway Patrol will assist with traffic controls.
    Springs Road Bridge will be completely closed to motorist, pedestrians and bicyclists, day and night, during the four-month construction period.
