"Collector" roadway in the General Plan. Permanente Creek corridor is designated as "Open Space" in the General Plan.
Document Description
The City of Los Altos proposes to replace the existing two-lane bridge (Bridge No. 27C-0115) over Permanente Creek on Fremont Avenue. The existing bridge is subject to collapse in the event of a major earthquake, has two piers within the creek bed, and has no shoulders or sidewalks. Following demolition of the existing structure, the project includes construction of an approximately 88-foot long replacement bridge on the same alignment. The new bridge would be up to 45.5 feet wide and would have five-foot wide shoulders, a 4-to-8-foot wide sidewalk, and concrete barriers with standard safety features. The abutments of the new bridge would be constructed near the top of the creek bank, outside of the 100-year floodplain.
