Document Description
The Project consists of replacing and widening the existing I-lane bridge (#46C0208) on Avenue 364 over Cottonwood Creek (creek) with a 2-lane bridge (Project). The Project would include replacement and widening of the existing bridge structure. The existing 103-foot-long bridge would be replaced with a 3-span structure having a total length of approximately 110 feet. The new, widened bridge would be approximately 32 feet wide and would accommodate two 12-foot travel lanes, two 2-foot shoulders, and concrete bridge railing (concrete barrier type 80). The roadway approaches would match the curb-to-curb width of the bridge, and taper to match the existing roadway width approximately 230 feet beyond the bridge approaches. The number of through lanes on Avenue 364 (one lane in each direction) would remain the same; therefore, the Project is not considered capacity increasing.
