Document Description
Proposal by County Public Works replace several piers and stabilize the creek bank at the Santa Rita Road Bridge at Old Creek east of the community by Cayucos, CA. The proposed project will involve: 1) Placement of a temporary culvert within the stream channel to isolate the work area to prevent any soil/sedimentation reaching the creek; 2) Placement of a crane on the road above the bridge. Holes will be saw-cut through the deck of the bridge. The crane will pick up the pile(s) and the hammer, lower the pile(s) through the holes, placing the tip at grade next to the existing pile(s). Labors will be under the bridge guiding them in place. The hammer will then pound the piles in place from a position over the bridge. Once the piles are driven, laborers will cut off the top of the piles with a welding torch, then maneuver the top of the pile(s) under the cap beam, probably with a "come along," weld a bracket beraing plate to the top of the pile(s) and bolt it to the beam. Then holes will be drilled into the perimeter edges of the saw cut holes on the deck, rebar will be placed in them, a form board will be placed under the saw cut holes and concrete will be placed in the hole(s). 3) Construction equipment will repair a historical access road down the creek bank just upstream from the bridge. This will require the placement of approximately 10 cubic yards of temporary fill.
