Document Description
Tulare County, proposes to replace the existing un-signalized, bi-directional, one-lane bridge crossing on Balch Park Road over Rancheria Creek (Bridge No. 46C-0162) with a two-lane bridge structure to provide improved safety and operations on the facility. The bridge is located in the northeast of the Community of Springville within Tulare County. The existing bridge was constructed in 1954 and is not eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. The structure is one lane, single span, cast-in-place reinforced concrete deck on steel beam superstructure bridge supported on reinforced concrete abutments. The bridge qualifies for replacement funding because it has a sufficiency rating of 78.6 and is flagged as functionally obsolete due to the low deck geometry rating. The existing bridge is a fracture critical structure.
