Sacramento –The Fort Bragg office of the California Department of Motor Vehicles, located at 410 S. Franklin St., will be closed for five and one-half  business days starting at noon on Thurs., March 18, 2010, for a construction project -- which includes flooring replacement, computer cabling and modular furniture for customer convenience.

The easiest way to accommodate this project is to close the office completely for the duration of the repairs. The Fort Bragg office is scheduled to reopen for business on Mon., March 29, 2010 at 8 a.m.

DMV officials say the 32-year old office has not had any substantial renovations since it opened in 1978. The Fort Bragg facility is one of several offices slated for maintenance or repair projects during 2010. DMV usually schedules about a dozen office closures each year for varying lengths of time to make infrastructure improvements or to replace worn-out furniture.

The Fort Bragg office has two full-time and one part-time employees who handle some 29,600 transactions each year.

DMV officials say they will carefully monitor customer flow to the surrounding offices and move technicians as needed to provide the best customer service possible during the renovation process.

During the closure, Fort Bragg-area DMV customers will be directed to neighboring offices in:

  • Ukiah, 542 S. Orchard Ave., 56 miles away, and
  • Garberville, 1180 Evergreen Rd., Suite A, 71 miles away.
