Rocks Road Bridge (No. 43C-0053) Replacement at Pinacale Rock Creek Project
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
Surrounding land use / Z: AP / AR. Roadway/Bridge no designation
Document Description
The proposed Project would include the replacement of the existing single-lane concrete bridge with a two-lane, clear span concrete bridge with 4-foot wide shoulders. The new bridge soffit would be raised to be above the top of the Pinacate Rock Creek bank to open up the hydraulic cross section through the crossing. The vertical profile of the new bridge would be raised approximately 3 feet in order for the new bridge to accommodate a 100-year storm event. Project implementation would also include up to 400 feet of roadway approach improvements on the west and east side of the bridge. The overall Rocks Road alignment is not changing; however, a slight double "S" curve would be incorporated onto the roadway approach horizontal alignment to reduce the length of the replacement bridge and provide a less sharp angle between the centerline of the road.
