Mokelumne River Bridge Upgrade

Document Description
Caltrans proposes to upgrade the bridge rails and widen the shoulders on the Mokelumne River Bridge (#26-0012). This bridge appears on the Structure Replacement and Improvement Needs (STRAIN) report because the outdated concrete baluster safety rails require replacement with new rails that meet current Caltrans standards. The bridge currently has very narrow shoulders on each side of the traveled way. The proposed project Includes widening the shoulders to four feet on both sides of the roadway, Improving accessibility for pedestrians and bicyclists, as well as for maintenance personnel. The existing two.foot-wide shoulders would be demolished with the baluster rails. Construction would be conducted entirely from scaffolding cantilevered from the bridge deck and supported by person-lifts on support pads on the ground below. No material or equipment will be placed In the water. The person-lifts would be transported down the bank of the Mokelumne River on rubber-tired equipment, after the brush and vegetation have been trimmed to allow access. See attached continuation page.
