Document Description
Install temporary, portable bridge at the Lodge Bridge River crossing at Pfeiffer Big Sure State Park to replace bridge that was removed in 2008 and to enable visitor and DPR personnel access to park campground. Prepare the two existing bridge abutments by cleaning surface and reconstructing the top of each abutment with concrete and rebar to form a flat, approximately 3 foot (ft) wide by 20 ft long surface for placement of bearing plates. Assemble bridge sections on nearby paved park roadway and install sections on abutments using cables, a crane, and counterweights. Remove approximately 50 ft of asphalt roadway on either side of the bridge and replace with aggregate road base to elevate the roadway up to the level of the bridge deck. Re-pave roadway with AC and place protective barriers consisting of t-post and plastic no-climb fencing along the road edge.
