The County of Stanislaus, Department of Public Works (County) in cooperation with the County of Merced, Department of Public Works, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is proposing to replace the River Road over San Joaquin River Bridge (aka Hills Ferry Road over the San Joaquin River) (Br No. 39C-0001) and to construct the necessary approach roadway improvements to accommodate the bridge replacement. The project involves replacing the existing Hills Ferry Road bridge slightly north of the existing alignment with a taller (5 ft taller at the peak of the bridge), 5-span structure that would accommodate 2 lanes of traffic similar to the existing bridge.
