San Luis Obispo Creek Higuera Street Bridge Seismic Retrofit
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The proposed project would place two cast-in-drilled-hole (CADH) pilings on each side of the bridge. The CADH pilings would be set approximately 35 feet into the stream bed and filled with concrete. Two existing bet caps would be lengthened and enlarged to connect with the new CADH piles. Concrete pads ("diaphragm bolsters") would be placed along both abutments and all bents, and earthquake restrainers attached to the bridge. The creek would be diverted through a culvert pipe during construction, and stranded fish or other aquatic resources would be captured and relocated to an appropriate adjacent location. Approximately 18 willow trees would be removed when an equipment access ramp is constructed.
