Caltrans plans to open the new Sarco Creek Bridge on state Highway 121 in Napa County Monday morning.

The bridge is located on Silverado Trail (Highway 121) between Hagen Road and Trancas Street just northeast of downtown Napa.

Construction of the new bridge started in June. The old Sacrco Creek Bridge's foundation was scoured after decades of wear from currents from the creek below.

The old two-lane bridge was 35.5 feet wide and 31 feet long with two 4-foot wide shoulders.

The new two-lane bridge is 47 feet long and 44 feet wide. It has two 12-foot wide traffic lanes and two 8-foot wide shoulders.
