Closure for the entirety of the project on both the north side and south side of the bridge, from Murphy Rd to just south of the Yuba River, remains in affect to all public traffic (vehicle, pedestrian and bicycle) through 6/26/20, as the bridge is repaired.

Please observe all construction signs and the instructions of onsite personnel. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience .
