Monday at midnight, Caltrans will close three lanes in each direction on Interstate 80 at Hilltop Drive in Richmond to prepare the Hilltop Drive bridge for demolition and eventual replacement.

The lane closures will begin at 12 a.m. and end at 5 a.m. on Tuesday. Caltrans is working to rebuild the eastbound, or southern, portion of the bridge.

Caltrans also anticipates delays overnight from January 24 to 25, when I-80 will be closed for bridge demolition. Drivers can detour around the bridge via the highway's on- and off-ramps, but traffic will be reduced to two lanes in each direction.
