The Santa Fe Avenue bridge spanning the Tuolumne River will be closed to all traffic beginning 9 p.m. Sunday, April 28 through 5 a.m. on Wednesday, May 8. The schedule depends on the weather. 

The traveling public should anticipate extra delays during commute hours.

Construction on building a new bridge east of the existing bridge began in August 2017 and is expected to conclude in summer 2020. Once constructed, the new bridge will include:

• Two 12-foot-wide tra¬ffic lanes in each direction;

• A 12-foot-wide center median lane to accommodate safe turning movements to/from existing driveways at both ends of the bridge;

• Shoulders measuring eight feet wide.

During construction, public safety remains a top priority. Access to properties will be maintained at all times. Open trenches will be covered using steel plates at the end of work shifts.
