State transportation officials are giving drivers that use Highway 12 to get from the East Bay to Sacramento plenty of heads up about an upcoming road closure.
Highway 12 will be closed from Highway 160 near Rio Vista to Interstate 5 west of Lodi from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 4, 5 and 6, according to a Caltrans news release.
The complete road closure will allow maintenance crews to complete repairs to Highway 12 in three days rather than 15, Caltrans said.
Drivers are being advised to use Interstate 80 and Interstate 5 as alternate routes and allow additional travel time.
The detour for eastbound Highway 12 traffic is Highway 160 north to Walnut Grove Road then to Interstate 5. Westbound traffic detour will be also be detoured on Walnut Grove Road.
Access to local residents, businesses and emergency services will be allowed.
