Document Description
The proposed project consists of replacing the Delta Mendota Canal Bridge on Nees Avenue, east of Douglas Ave, near City of Firebaugh. The existing functionally obsolete, two-lane bridge would be replaced with a new two-lane bridge that meets current standards. A detour could be constructed on-site, or an on off-site detour could be used to move traffic around the construction project. If an off-site detour is used by way of N. Fairfax Ave, W. Bullard Ave and N. Washoe Ave, the detour route could require an asphalt concrete overlay or asphalt patching with placement of either shoulder backing or a shoulder treatment.
