California Department of Transportation, District 8
SR-74 Bridge Replacement Project (EA-08-1G470)
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
Two-lane undivided conventional highway.
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes to replace Morrill Canyon Bridge (Bridge No. 56-0169, Post Mile [PM] 3.08) near Lake Elsinore, and Strawberry Creek Bridge (Bridge No. 56-0180, PM 53.5) near Hemet, on State Route 74 (SR-74) in Riverside County. Both bridge structures have non-standard lane and shoulder widths. Due to significant deterioration and non-standard features, there is a need to replace these structures to meet current design, crash, and safety standards.
