Good morning. Boating season is upon us and Caltrans has updated news about the repairs to Hwy 128. Please see below and attached. The road will be closed for about three weeks to stabilize the road. Once stabilized, Caltrans will install temporary traffic signals for one way traffic. When it does, please watch for slowing and stopped vehicles as you head to the lake, and be careful out there. I’ll provide updates on the construction activities when available.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (pdf)
State Highway 128 in Yolo County Closed in Both Directions
From Pleasant Valley Road (Road 86) to Solano County Line for Emergency Repairs
YOLO COUNTY— Caltrans is alerting motorists about an ongoing full closure of State Highway 128 for emergency work.
Wet weather and saturated soil caused an early-morning slip underneath the roadway on Saturday, April 1, resulting in the closure of the eastbound and westbound directions at different locations.
An emergency contractor will bring in heavy equipment for slide removal and slop-stabilizing work at postmiles 1.75 and 2.24. The closure is estimated to last about three weeks from today. One-way traffic control will begin once it is determined to be safe.
The permanent repair will require a soldier pile wall, and the work will be impacted by the weather. Motorists will not have access into the closure area unless they have proof of local residency and then will be escorted to their homes.
