Newcastle Bridge Lift 3/23/16

NEWCASTLE – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is alerting motorists and community residents that the construction dates for the vertical lifting of the Newcastle Road overcrossing bridge structure over Interstate 80 (I-80) in south Placer County have been changed. The Newcastle Road overcrossing closure will now begin on Monday, March 28 and continue until Thursday, April 14. Additionally, Interstate 80 will be closed from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. on Wednesday, Mar. 30 and again on Thursday, Mar. 31 between the Highway 193 interchange and Sierra College Boulevard. Motorists will utilize an eight-mile detour on Taylor Road through south Placer County.

The Newcastle Road overcrossing is the last structure to be lifted as part of the “Raise80” project, which is increasing the vertical clearance of nine freeway overcrossings on I-80 in south Placer County. Contractors are currently working to prepare the overcrossing for raising the bridge structure. Work to lower I-80 under the Newcastle Union Pacific Railroad trestle to achieve the required vertical clearance is anticipated to begin in late April or early May.

The nine overpass structures being raised on I-80 are between Magra Road and Loomis in Placer County. Seven of the structures will have the bridge deck raised approximately two feet, and two of the structures will have the roadway lowered to achieve the necessary clearance. When complete, all structures will meet today’s 16 feet, 6 inches federal clearance standards for high-profile vehicles and national defense, eliminating the need for most high-profile vehicles to use local roads as detours.

Raise80.com <http://www.raise80.com/> is the central source for information about construction details, alternate routes, detours, maps and project updates. Motorists can also sign up for project alerts on the website as weather or other unexpected events may prolong the work or cause construction activities to be rescheduled.
