Document Description
The proposed federally funded project consists of replacing the Houghton Canal Bridge on N. Chateau Fresno Avenue. The project will replace a structurally deficient timber bridge, with posted load limits, with a bridge that meets current safety standards. Road approach improvements will start at approximately 700 feet on both sides of the bridge. Due to low traffic volumes and reasonably short detour of three miles, the roadway will be closed to public traffic. Traffic will be detoured around the project site by way of Belmont Avenue, Grantland Avenue, and SR 180. It is anticipated the contractor will stage on the roadway.
