Rio Vista Bridge reopens on Highway 12


The Rio Vista Bridge, which connects Solano and Sacramento counties on state Highway 12, has reopened early Monday morning after an extended closure, according to Caltrans.

The bridge was closed due to an ongoing problem with the mechanism that raises and lowers the drawbridge to allow for ship traffic to pass beneath it.

The mechanism was damaged earlier this month, according to Caltrans. The damaged motor gearbox has been sent to a manufacturer to expedite repairs.

California Highway Patrol officials said there are no more planned closures for the bridge as of Monday morning.
