Document Description
The City of Placerville (City), with funding from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and assistance from Caltrans, proposes to replace the existing Placerville Drive Bridge (No. 25C0029) over Hangtown Creek due to the bridge being identified as functionally obsolete due to substandard deck width and therefore is eligible for rehabilitation or replacement under Highway Bridge Program (HBP) guidelines. The proposed project is located along Placerville Drive approximately 0.5-miles north of US 50, within the western portion of the City of Placerville. Constructed in 1931, the existing bridge is a single span reinforced concrete T-girder bridge on concrete abutments founded on spread footings. The bridge is approximately 45 feet long by 24 feet wide and is within the City’s right-of-way.
