A prepared statement from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers cautions the public that the Folsom Lake Crossing will be partially closed for construction until July. One westbound lane of Folsom Lake Crossing will be closed beginning April 17 to July 1 to repair a drainage canal near the bridge.
That westbound lane will be closed to vehicle traffic weekdays from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The closed lane, which includes the westbound bicycle lane, will be used for heavy equipment during construction hours.
The adjacent two-lane bicycle and pedestrian path will remain open, but may close periodically to allow the movement of heavy vehicles in the area. All pedestrian and bicycle traffic from the bike path must proceed with caution and obey all posted traffic signs and designated traffic control personnel.
Heavy rains have eroded the drainage canal on federal land that faces the Folsom Dam. This erosion does not pose any safety risk to the public.
