Gaviota Beach Road and Bridge Replacement Project
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Document Description
The County will replace the existing bridge with a 250-foot long bridge that will allow flows from a 100-year storm to pass. The new bridge will be a maximum of 13 feet higher than the existing bridge. It will have two 12-foot wide travel lanes and two 5 foot wide shoulders. Two bridge types are being considered: 1) cast-in-place prestressed concrete box girder; and 2) resting on steel pipe piles that are placed 10 feet or more below the creek bed to protect the foundation from scouring effects of the creek.
