Document Description
The city proposes to replace the existing structurally deficient Coast Highway (Hill St) Bridge over the San Luis Rey River, (Br. No. 57C-0322). The existing bridge was built in 1929, and is in poor structural condition. At 87 years old, the bridge is past its useful service life. The bridge is a "Fracture Critical" steel truss, because it is structurally non-redundant and has steel members loaded in tension - if one of these members fractured, it would cause a collapses of a span. The purpose of this project is to remove the deteriorated, structurally deficient, fracture critical and seismically vulnerable existing structure and replace it with a new bridge designed to current structural and geometric standards while minimizing adverse impacts on the San Luis Rey River.
