Document Description
The City of Barstow proposes to replace the two existing bridges, Mojave River (Bridge No, 54G·0089) and Mojave River Overflow (Bridge No. 54C-0090) over the Mojave River along North First Avenue in the City of Barstow, San Bernardino County. The new bridges, approaches, and connecting roadway would be constructed just to the east of the existing bridges and roadway, which would remain open until the new work is completed and the new bridges are opened for travel. The project would improve the safety and operation of bridges along North First Avenue by replacing the existing structures with bridges that are structurally safe and meet current seismic, design, and roadway standards.
