Southern Heights Bridge Replacement

Posted on April 28, 2016

Southern Heights Bridge

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 12’ wide bridge, the minimum bridge width requested by both the City’s Fire Department and local residents.

The new bridge is currently being designed by a design consultant, Mark Thomas and Company. Environmental clearance at the federal level (i.e., NEPA) has been obtained, and the City is currently working on State clearance (i.e., CEQA).
