The move comes after the bridges were stuck in the upright position. The agency says the bridges have been inspected an parts procured that will prevent further closures.
The Rio Vista Bridge on Highway 12 and west of Highway 160 will remain open but reduced to one lane with traffic controls.
The bridges, deemed safe for travel, are more than 75 years old, in some cases. Electrical and mechanical equipment on each bridge will be refurbished as well.
While boating traffic is closed at Three Mile Slough Bridge, vehicle traffic is open during daytime hours for all bridges.
