Bridge Railing Replacement at 2 locations:

SR-330 City Creek Bridge and East Fork City Creek Bridge


Friday, May 24, 2019, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) District 8, alerted the local media that maintenance construction is continuing to work on the bridge rail replacement project on State Route 330 (SR 330).

The $3.3 million project began in April 2019 and is expected to be completed by the end of summer in 2020.  The work is taking place in two locations at City Creek Bridge (PM 32.51) and East Fork City Creek Bridge (PM 33.68) with one lane open in each direction.

A solar traffic control signal has been installed at the City Creek Bridge location for one lane, in each direction of travel. The signal is timed for approximately 90 seconds in each direction, however the delays are based on the number of vehicles in the queue. Since the solar signal was operational last week there have been delays of up to thirty (30) minute during high traffic volume periods, such as commute hours and snow conditions.
