SACRAMENTO – Caltrans announced today that a website for the public to gain information on the Pioneer Bridge Re-paving project is now active. Motorists can go to http://www.pioneerbridgeproject.com/ for the latest project information.

The Pioneer Bridge is the main connector for Sacramento and Yolo counties on U.S. Highway 50 over the Sacramento River.

The contractor began work July 10, to grind down the interior shoulder and the number one lane for both directions. Sections of the Pioneer Bridge near downtown Sacramento will be closed through the summer for nighttime and weekend work, at various locations as Caltrans begins work to put a new surface on the span, replacing the deck overlay with a thicker, more durable surfacing material.

The daily schedule is Monday through Friday from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Construction is expected to last through September, in an effort to complete work by Labor Day of this year.

The first of six planned 55-hour weekend closures will begin 7 p.m. Friday, July 21, through 6 a.m. Monday, July 24, reopening for the morning commute.

Caltrans urges the public to plan ahead before traveling on the bridge and to seek alternative routes when necessary. Delays are expected during construction.
