Document Description
The proposed project would consist of the demolition of the existing Park Avenue Bridge, and construction of an improved seismically-reinforced bridge over the Grand Canal. The new bridge would include 11-foot vehicle lanes, 6-foot raised sidewalks, and ADA-compliant switchback ramps. The new bridge structure would be slightly wider than the existing bridge, with a width of approximately 36 feet (compared to the existing width of approximately 30 feet). The improved bridge structure would be positioned within existing City right-of-way (ROW), and does not include nor require any ROW acquisition. Bridge lighting would be provided for both pedestrian safety and architectural character. The existing style of concrete light poles and lamps would replicate the existing luminaires and would line both sidewalks. To maintain access to Balboa Island and Little Balboa Island during construction activities, the project would consist of the installation of a temporary bridge over the Grand Canal at Balboa Avenue, which would allow for demolition of the entire Park Avenue Bridge at one time and reconstruction in a single phase. Construction of the proposed project would take approximately 10 months to complete.
