Richmond-San Rafael Bridge Construction Update

Posted on May 17, 2019


Richmond Bridge
Do you remember back in February when the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge temporarily closed because of falling concrete from the upper deck? Caltrans crews thoroughly inspected the bridge to make sure it’s safe to use and to assess the problem–and determined that the each of the bridge’s original joints, which date back to the mid 1950s, is in need of replacement. The new joints feature a rubberized seal designed to shrink and expand with the changing temperatures (which will prevent cracking of the surrounding concrete road deck). Caltrans and the Bay Area Toll Authority expect this project to be completed in July. In the meantime, if you’re traveling across the bridge, make sure to give yourself a little extra time due to the work.
