Nighttime Closures of Rainbow Bridge This Week

Work on the Rainbow Bridge will require overnight closures from Monday, May 2 to Friday, May 6 between Scott Street and Folsom Auburn Road.  The Rainbow Bridge closures will take place between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. Motorists are encouraged to take Lake Natoma Crossing to Natoma Street to Riley Street as an alternate route.  The City of Folsom does not anticipate the closures will create significant traffic delays.  Detours will be clearly marked.  Message signs will alert motorists in advance of the closure before work begins.

The closures are necessary to perform work on the Rainbow Bridge Maintenance Project.  The rehabilitation project will extend the lifespan of the historic bridge and provide a smoother and safer drive for motorists. Stay informed about closures and detours at  For more information about the project, contact Brian Reed at or call 916-355-8322.
