Drivers headed through the Delta region to Sacramento should expect traffic delays because of the closure a drawbridge on Highway 160 for the next two months.
The nearly 90-year-old Isleton Bridge, located north of the small Delta town, is being repainted, said Caltrans spokesman Dennis Keaton.
Starting Monday, motorists should anticipate traffic delays and factor in extra driving time. Traffic will be detoured around the bridge. Work is expected to be done by Aug. 24.
The work is being done during the summer months to lessen the effect on local schools, Keaton said. It is part of an $8.4 million project to repaint three Highway 160 bridges in the Delta region.
The Steamboat Slough Bridge was completed last fall, and the Paintersville Bridge reopened last month.
