IS #22-0025 Forrester Road Over Westside Canal Bridge Replacement Project
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
Present Land Use is an existing bridge, Zoning is A-2 (General Agriculture) and General Plan Designation is Agriculture
The proposed replacement bridge would span the Westside Main Canal and Sumac Canal in the same location as the existing bridge. The proposed Forrester Road Bridge and approach roads would include two 12-foot-wide lanes, two 8-foot-wide paved shoulders, and a 55-mile-per-hour (mph) design speed. Reinforced concrete abutments on deep foundations would support a single-span steel plate girder superstructure. The proposed bridge would require raising the roadway’s vertical alignment by approximately 3.5 feet, to provide the required clearance between the Westside Main Canal and the bridge. The grade of the roadway approaches that are approximately 1,200 feet on the south end of the bridge and 1,000 feet on the north end of the bridge would be adjusted to conform the higher bridge span with the existing roadway, to meet the design speed, grade raise, and horizontal curve requirements.
