Document Description
The project site is located at the western terminus of Edinger Ave in the City of Huntington Beach. The existing bridge spans the Bolsa Chica Channel prior to its connection to Sunset Way East in the City of Seal Beach. The County, in cooperation with Caltrans and the Federal Highways Administration (FHWA) proposes to replace the existing structurally deficient and seismically vulnerable timber bridge with a new bridge in the same location. The bridge provides the sole public access link into Sunset Harbour, which is a County of Orange regional recreational facility. The existing bridge 15-span heavy timber structure with two 12-foot-wide lanes (1 lane in each direction) and two 8-foot-wide shoulders. The Project would also increase the width of the sidewalk/separated bikeway from 4 to 5 feet and provide overhead lighting. Because project The County is receiving Federal Highway Bridge Program funds from the FHWA). HBP funds will be used for construction engineering, environmental mitigation, and Project construction. The provision of federal funding for the proposed Project requires National Environmental Policy Act documentation, in addition to CEQA documentation. Caltrans has determined that a CE (with required technical studies) under Section 6004 of SAFETEA-LU and Title 23 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR, Part 771.117[d][3], Bridge Replacement Project on an existing alignment) is the appropriate NEPA documentation for the project.
