Document Description
The proposed Project will replace the existing bridge along the same alignment as the existing structure. The new bridge will accommodate two 12-foot travel lanes, 5-foot bike lanes and 6-foot sidewalks. The profile will be lowered slightly, while maintaining the same bridge soffit elevation as the existing structure. The new bridge is anticipated to be a single-span cast-in-place, post-tensioned concrete slab, approximately 70 feet long. Construction of the bridge will involve excavation for and construction of concrete abutments, situated on deep foundations. Other temporary work within Little Chico Creek includes removal of the existing structure, falsework erection and removal, and installation of scour countermeasures at the abutments. Construction of the roadway approaches will involve removal of existing pavement and placement of aggregate base and hot mix asphalt pavement. New curb, gutter and sidewalk will be constructed on the approach roadways and will connect with the existing pedestrian facilities. During construction, Salem Street will be closed to traffic and a detour route made available. Residential access to the parcels adjacent to the bridge will be maintained throughout construction. Tree removal and removal of other vegetation along the creek will be necessary for the project. Temporary construction easements will be needed from the four parcels adjacent to the bridge to facilitate driveway/walkway conforms, utility relocations, and allow construction access. There are two utilities crossing Little Chico Creek along Salem Street, PG&E gas lines and overhead electrical, that will be relocated during construction. Construction is anticipated to begin in spring 2023 and will have a duration of approximately 8 months.
