Document Description
The Butano Canyon Bridge Replacement Project will replace an unserviceable bridge in unincorporated San Mateo County, CA. The project site is located in a community called Butano Canyon within the Santa Cruz mountains, surrounded by Butano State parks and private forested lands. The project site consists of Spruce Lane, a single lane private road, residential driveways on both sides of the creek, and the bridge across the creek. The existing Butano Canyon Bridge is a 100-foot long three span wooden bridge on Spruce Lane constructed in 1952 with redwood spanners. The bridge has become unserviceable due to deterioration including a failing deck and an unstable foundation, resulting in it being unsafe for emergency vehicles or residents. See NOD for full details.
