Nut Tree overpass to be completed by August

By Daily Republic staff

VACAVILLE - Drivers can expect to use the new, improved Nut Tree Drive overcrossing by August, Deputy Public Works Director Shawn Cunningham said.

The record rains earlier this year pushed the completion date for the much-anticipated project back nearly two months.

Once completed, drivers crossing Interstate 80 will have a four-lane roadway with left-turn pockets. It replaces what was a two-lane bridge and an aging hook-shaped ramp to bring drivers to what was once the Nut Tree.

"This will take a lot of the traffic and congestion off of Allison Drive," Cunningham said.

Vacaville isn't too worried about the delay because the construction of the adjacent Nut Tree project was also delayed by rains "and our main goal is to keep pace with the private development," Cunningham said.
