Document Description
The County of Merced (County) proposes to replace the existing Dickenson Ferry Road Bridge (Bridge No. 39C0095) that crosses Bear Creek, widen the bridge approaches, realign the intersection of Dickenson Ferry Road and Quinley Avenue, and relocate a small section of the O'Donnell Lateral Canal (proposed project). The primary objective is to replace the existing bridge structure to improve public safety. The existing bridge has reached the end of its lifespan and a bridge repair or rehabilitation is no longer feasible. The proposed project also serves to improve safety and increase sight distance by improving the roadway approaches to the bridge and realigning of the Dickenson Ferry Road/Quinley Avenue intersection. The current sufficiency rating of the bridge is 18.7 which is a significant drop from the previous rating of 36 in June of 2008 and is expected to continue to deteriorate at an increased rate.
