Workers start ten weeks of emergency repairs on a damaged Olivehurst overpass Wednesday night, adding a brief detour to southbound State Route 70.

The overpass was damaged after a backhoe being hauled on a tractor-trailer struck it a month ago, Caltrans said. Repairs will be $1.6M and are expected to be done by late August. Until then, southbound drivers should anticipate a brief detour weeknights between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m.
