Northgate Closed Three Hours Today For Floodgate Exercise

THE NATOMAS BUZZ | @natomasbuzz

The city will close a segment of Del Paso Boulevard between Northgate Boulevard and the Highway 160 on-ramp today.

The closure is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Detour signs will be in place to redirect traffic.

City public works crews will practice installing a set of floodgates during the closure. The city conducts flood training exercises every year to help new crew members learn how to place floodgates used to control the flow of high water.

Every fall, city public works crews check sandbag supplies and equipment, inspect floodgates, and make repairs where necessary. The city maintains floodgates at 14 locations.
