Document Description
The purpose of the project is to replace an outdated bridge with a new bridge to ensure long term structural stability and safe usage. The bridge is elevated roughly 25 feet above the desert wash and built with wood pilings, wood cross bracing, and wood decks, which are all at the end of their structural life. The existing bridge is over 70 years old and service interruptions and safety hazards currently exist due to the type and age of the bridge materials. The new bridge structures and supports will be made out of steel and the new decks will be pre-cast concrete. The finished bridge will be structurally sound for many years of continued service and require very little maintenance.
