Merced Seismic Retrofit Project
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration

Document Description
Note: Extended Review Period Per Lead. The project would seismically retrofit seven bridges on SR 59, 140, and 152 in Merced County to increase structural integrity by adding steel column casings and retrofitting hinges with pipe seat extenders and cable restrainers. The work would bring the bridges up to current standards and minimize the risk of collapse during a seismic event. The project would also upgrade the non-standard bridge railings. In addition, 8-ft shoulders would be added on the Los Banos Creek/West Branch Mud Slough bridge (Bridge number 039-0090). The bridge currently has no shoulders and does not match the approaching roadway, which was 8-ft shoulders.
