A venue 428 Sand Creek Bridge (No.46C-0340) Replacement Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The proposed project would replace the existing two-lane Avenue 428 Sand Creek Bridge to meet current standards to accommodate a minimum 24-foot-wide travel width plus two 4-foot-wide shoulders for a total width of 32 feet. The existing structure was constructed in 1939 and qualifies to receive federal funding for replacement due to the old age of the bridge and non-standard geometric configuration of the structure in relation to the approach roadway. The proposed bridge will consist of an approximately 76-foot long by 36-foot wide, clear-span prestressed cast-in-place concrete voided slab bridge. Construction is anticipated to start in the fall of 2024 and will be completed in approximately 6-months. Avenue 428 would be temporarily closed at the bridge site and a temporary detour would be established during construction. Thus, this project will provide a public benefit by improving safety and security of the public by improving the transportation infrastructure for the general population in the region and vehicles, including large agricultural equipment, using these facilities.
