Document Description
Caltrans proposes to replace existing northbound and southbound bridges along US 101 near Refugio State Beach due to the presence of reactive aggregate in the structure concrete, which has caused deterioration and cracks to the bridge decks and abutments. A two-span and clear span option are being considered. The alignment and profile would be similar to the existing structures, but would be sever feet wider to accommodate standard inside shoulders and upgraded railings, which would be open style approved for use in the coastal zone. The project will involve several other components, as described in greater detail in the attachment, including upgrading railings, improving fish passage and habitat conditions of Canada del Refugio Creek beneath the bridges, rehabilitating and existing pedestrian pathway, and upgrading the interchange lighting system.
