Document Description
The Contra Costa County Public Works Department is proposing to replace the Orwood Bridge, located in the east Contra Costa County area. The bridge has been categorized as "functionally obsolete" by the California Department of Transportation and the aging wooden structure will be replaced with a new concrete structure according to current design standards. The planned improvements include removal and replacement of the existing bridge. The existing bridge over Werner Cut is a twelve span timber bridge built in 1947. The structure has a reinforced concrete deck supported by timber stringers and girders on timber piles. Currently, bridge weight restrictions are in place and repairs are made frequently.
