CALTRANS Announces 55-Hour Full Highway Closure for State Route 12


by ECT

STOCKTON – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is continuing work on a project to replace the bearing pads of the State Route 12 (SR-12) Potato Slough Bridge located near the Tower Park & Terminous communities, west of Interstate 5 (I-5) in San Joaquin County.

This $6.36 million project will require overnight one-way traffic control closures, and two 55-hour full weekend closures of eastbound and westbound SR-12 between SR-160 and I-5 as the Potato Slough Bridge is jacked (raised) for the replacement and testing of new bridge bearing pads.

The first 55-hour full highway closure is scheduled to start at 9:00 p.m. on Friday, June 24, through 4:00 a.m. on Monday, June 27, 2022. Future advisories will include the next 55-hour planned closure dates.

During full highway closures, motorists should consider I-5 and I-80 as alternate routes and should allow additional travel time due to the detour. Detour routes are below (an approximate 30-mile, 45-minute detour) and will be posted:

• Traveling Eastbound on SR-12
Take SR-160 north to Walnut Grove Road to I-5

• Traveling Westbound on SR-12
Take I-5 north to Walnut Grove Road to SR-160 south

• Access to local residents, businesses and emergency services will be allowed from SR-12 into Tower Park from the east and into B&W Resort Marina (Brannon Island Road) from the west.

• Current truck advisories apply. CA LEGAL trucks with kingpin to rear axle over 30 feet are not recommended on SR-160. Trucks are discouraged from using this detour route and are advised to use I-5 and I-80 as alternate routes.

The work schedule is subject to change due to traffic incidents, weather, availability of equipment, materials, and/or construction-related issues.
