Document Description
Replace the existing bridge on Frankwood Avenue where it crosses the Alta Main Canal. The proposed two-lane bridge would be an approximately 145-foot-long, three-span, cast-in-place, concrete slab bridge located downstream of the existing bridge. The proposed bridge will have curb-to-curb width of approximately 32 feet, while the existing bridge only has a clear width of 16.4 feet. This would increase lane widths from 8.2 feet to 12 feet. Construction of the proposed bridge would also add 4-foot wide shoulder in each direction, where the existing bridge has none. No new lanes will be added as part of this project. The total width of the proposed bridge deck would be 34.96 feet.
