The resurfacing of the Pioneer Bridge linking Sacramento to West Sacramento began today. The project will affect traffic in both directions between Jefferson Blvd and Sacramento’s 5th Street for the next six weekends.

Caltrans on Friday finished a $25 million repaving job on the Pioneer Memorial Bridge, making Labor Day weekend the first since July that all lanes and ramps will be open for use.

The completed work on the Pioneer Bridge should ease travel for some of the thousands of vehicles going to and from Lake Tahoe, or between Sacramento and the Bay Area.

Caltrans had contractors working 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. weekdays and around the clock weekends to finish the resurfacing project.
