Southern Heights Bridge Replacement

Posted on April 28, 2016


Project Description:  The Southern Heights Bridge (Bridge No. 27CO148) is a one lane multi-span stringer structure with a timber deck supported on timber bents with concrete pedestal footings and reinforced concrete wall abutments that was constructed in 1981. The Southern Heights Bridge was inspected in 2011 by Caltrans Structure Maintenance and Investigations Based on the Caltrans recommendations, the bridge is eligible for replacement under the Highway Bridge Program (HBP) administered for Federal Highway Association (FHWA) by Caltrans.

The proposed project will replace the existing bridge and construct a new bridge along southern Heights Boulevard. The design will include a one lane bridge with a 14 foot clear width and 4 foot sidewalk that fits within the existing right of way. This project is fully funded by the Highway Bridge Program.
