Motorists traveling the Rainbow Bridge in Folsom during the nighttime hours can expect delays Tuesday evening into early Wednesday morning due to a maintenance project requiring one lane to close.


Repair and maintenance work on the city’s water distribution system will necessitate overnight northbound lane closures on the Rainbow Bridge on Tuesday, March 12, and Wednesday, March 13.

Northbound Greenback Lane between Folsom-Auburn Road and Scott Street will close from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Motorists are encouraged to take Lake Natoma Crossing to Natoma Street to Riley Street as an alternative route.


The City of Folsom does not anticipate significant traffic delays due to the closures. Detours will be clearly marked, and message signs will alert motorists in advance of lane closures.
