Caltrans has scheduled one-way traffic control on the Antioch Bridge (CA-160), due to bridge inspections. One-way traffic control will begin on Monday, March 20 through Thursday, March 23 from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM each day. During the inspection one side of the bridge will be closed while traffic flows on the other side with one way traffic control assistance. March 20 and 21 Northbound CA-160 will be closed. March 22 and 23 Southbound CA-160 will be closed.
The Bay Area Toll Authority (BATA) reminds drivers that tolls at the region’s seven state-owned toll bridges will go up by $1 on Jan. 1, 2022. Regular tolls for two-axle cars and trucks (as well as for motorcycles) at the San Francisco-Oakland Bay, Antioch, Benicia-Martinez, Carquinez, Dumbarton, Richmond-San Rafael and San Mateo-Hayward bridges will rise to $7 from the current $6 on Jan. 1, 2022.
Tolls for vehicles with three or more axles also will rise by $1 on Jan. 1, 2022, at all seven of the state-owned toll bridges: to $17 for three axles, $22 for four-axles, $27 for five axles, $32 for six axles, and $37 for combinations with seven or more axles.
Caltrans is reminding motorists that one-way traffic controls will be in effect on the Highway 160 Antioch Bridge as crews perform routine inspections of the span this week and next week. Crews will alternate lane closures in both northbound and southbound directions, with flaggers and a pilot car helping direct traffic. The work is slated from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on four consecutive weekdays – Monday through Thursday of this week and March 16 to 19 next week. This will allow one traffic lane on the bridge to remain open during the inspections. Motorists should expect delays and allow for extra travel time. Work is dependent on the weather. Vessels will pass normally beneath the bridge on the San Joaquin River.
