I-80 Meridian and Midway Bridges-Vacaville and Dixon
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) completed its retrofit work on the Meridian Road Bridge at I-80 (#23-0147) on Tuesday, August 15, 2017 and is now shifting its construction focus to the Midway Road Bridge at I-80 (#23-0254).
Both bridges are located above eastbound and westbound Interstate-80 (I-80) in and near the cities of Vacaville and Dixon in rural Solano County.
MIDWAY BRIDGE TO CLOSE FOR DEMOLITION AND REBUILD-Starting September 6, 2017
Now that Meridian Bridge has reopened, Caltrans will completely CLOSE the Midway Bridge, demolish Midway Bridge and rebuild it as the same site.
The long-term closure of the Midway Bridge is scheduled to start the morning of Wednesday, September 6, 2017.
The Midway Bridge will remain CLOSED until construction of the new Midway Bridge is completed as early as spring-summer 2018.
This project retrofits the existing Meridian Road Bridge and will demolish and rebuild the Midway Road Bridge. The work seismically retrofits these bridges and brings them up to the latest seismic safety standards.
Midway Road Bridge Closure-Detour Routes
During 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.
I-80 Full Highway Closure-Overnight September 9, 2017
During the one-night demolition of the Midway Bridge starting the night of Saturday, September 9, 2017 until the morning of Sunday, September 10, 2017, eastbound and westbound I-80 will be closed overnight at Midway Road. A short detour onto frontage roads near the bridge will be in effect. Caltrans will release additional information as more detailed dates and times are available.
