Road Closure Updates
Hot times in Riverbank... Summer in Riverbank! Isn't it wonderful? Summer is here, the weather is perfect, keeping for the most part near the mid-90s throughout the Central Valley. We are in our third year of drought after a very dry winter and spring. The City is asking for all residents and businesses to help conserve water. This means paying attention to watering days/times, and just plain conservation.
There are several of road construction projects taking place throughout the City, with the most noticeable one right now at the intersection of Oakdale & Morrill Roads, where a new signal light is being installed. If you happen to turn on to any road with active construction, please be watchful of detour signs and be sure to drop your speed accordingly. The speed limit in construction areas is 25mph unless otherwise posted. Be sure to check this website and the websites of the towns you plan to visit and look for their Road Closure Updates. Road construction in Riverbank happens year-round so be sure to look at this road closure update page periodically to keep you up-to-date on where the work is scheduled in Riverbank. Postings can also be found on Facebook and Twitter.
