Caltrans 5 (San Luis Obispo)
(California Department of Transportation, District 5)
Arroyo Paredon EFA
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Proposed work for Arroyo Paredon Creek Bridge includes continued debris removal, culvert clean-out and replacement, road and shoulder replacement, complete bridge and abutment replacement including bridge rails. The project would also include the relocation of several utility poles within the Caltrans ROW. An existing 16-in high pressure gas line on the north side of the roadway ROW will be relocated and realigned to the south side of the bridge and roadway. Caltrans will develop and implement a separate restoration project after this emergency repair project.
Due to the damage caused to the bridge rail and to the structure, the bridge was gated and closed on Feb 9, 2018. Bridge replacements and repairs require immediate action to provide access to the local community and to prevent and mitigate the loss or impairment of life and property.
