Document Description
The City of Palo Alto (City), in coordination with the City of East Palo Alto and the San Francisquito Creek Joint Powers Authority, proposes to replace the Newell Road Bridge (herein referred to as the "bridge") over San Francisquito Creek in order to prevent flooding and to enhance the safety of motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. The proposed Project would also incorporate channel improvements to widen a bottleneck segment of San Francisquito Creek along the northern bank that stretches approximately 900 feet downstream of the bridge. The current bridge obstructs the flow of San Francisquito Creek during flow events, posing a flooding hazard once replacement of the upstream bridge at Pope Street/Chaucer Street (the Pope-Chaucer Street Bridge) is completed.
