Document Description
The Dogwood Bridge Replacement Project consists of replacing the existing bridge with a new structure that is raised above the current bridge deck elevation, installing an 88.5-foot clear span prefabricated modular steel truss bridge with a 36-foot roadway over the Central Main Canal. The bridge will be set upon two abutments placed at each end with no intermediate support. As part of the County of Imperial’s Dogwood Road Bridge Replacement Project, IID will construct a temporary shoofly to the east of the project site, 120 feet from the bridge construction. IID will install eight (8) new dead-end wood poles, four (4) new tangent wood poles, install two (2) wood guy poles across Dogwood Road. The OPGW span over the bridge in place, the line crew will use a 161-kV insulator to offset the OPGW 6-7 feet to the east. The shoofly is temporary; when the bridge construction is complete, IID will return the electrical lines to their original location and demolish the shoofly. Also, as part of the County of Imperial’s Dogwood Road Bridge Replacement Project, IID will remove and replace the existing pipe of the Dogwood Lateral 1 crossing Dogwood Road, extending the pipe crossing by 22 feet to the west. This will include: • Removing the approximately 66-foot long existing 36–inch diameter concrete pipe under Dogwood Road, and the outlet headwall. • Replacing the existing 66 feet of pipe with 88 feet of 36–inch diameter concrete pipe connected to the remaining pipe with a concrete collar, and a 4-foot wide, 9-foot tall precast concrete outlet headwall. • Backfill and compact to the natural surface around pipe and headwall.
