Document Description
The project site is on Lagunitas Road between Sir Francis Drake Boulevard and Ross Commons Lane in Ross, California. The project consists of replacing a bridge over Corte Madera Creek and improvements to the approach roadway and immediate surroundings on and adjacent to Lagunitas Road. The bridge has been periodically inspected by Caltrans and has been subject to the federal bridge inspections and rating guidelines, which have noted various deficiencies over the years. Corte Madera Creek ahs also been studied as part of the ongoing flood control efforts in the Ross Valley watershed. The purpose of the project is to replace the approximately 100-year old width, and is eligible for replacement funding through the Federal Highway Bridge Program (HBP). The bridge also contributes to local flooding by acting as an impediment to flow during high water in the creek. Past investigation of the bridge foundation has also determined a susceptibility to liquefaction-induced settlement during a seismic event. To improve the safety of the traveling public and to reduce the potential for localized flooding, the Town of Ross has decided to replace the bridge.
