Hwy. 50 full closure planned for October at Echo Summit postponed for one year

Precast Bridge Girders Won’t Be Ready for October Target Date | 
The planned full closure of U.S. Highway 50 over Echo Summit planned for mid-October is being postponed until next year, Caltrans announced yesterday
The seven precast bridge girders needed for the $14.1 million Echo Summit Sidehill Viaduct Replacement Project will not be ready in time for an October closure. Instead, contractor Q&D Construction will winterize the job site and come back to finish the project next year.
In addition to the girder installation deck surfacing, work needed to complete the project includes paving the approaches to the bridge, constructing new barrier walls and demolishing the existing structure, which was built in 1939.
Ongoing work on the bridge is taking place daytime Monday through Friday with reversing one-way traffic control and delays up to 20 minutes.
Caltrans advises motorists to “Be Work Zone Alert.” The department will issue updates on Twitter @CaltransDist3 and on Facebook at CaltransDistrict3. For real-time traffic, click on Caltrans’ QuickMap quickmap.dot.ca.gov/ or download the QuickMap app from the App Store or Google Play.
