Document Description
The I Street Bridge Deck Conversion for Active Transportation Project would maintain and improve active transportation use on the upper deck of the existing I Street Bridge. As a part of the separate I Street Bridge Replacement Project, the existing roadway approach ramps to the I Street Bridge from I Street and Jibboom Street in Sacramento and from C Street in West Sacramento would be removed. The proposed deck conversion project would retain a portion of each approach ramp structure on each end of the existing I Street Bridge to accommodate access points for pedestrians and bicyclists. The retained portions would be used as raised platforms to which ADA-compliant pedestrian ramps would be attached. These platforms already span over the active railroad tracks. Four ADA-compliant bicycle/pedestrian ramps would be constructed, two in West Sacramento and two in Sacramento. In West Sacramento, one ramp would be constructed north of the existing I Street Bridge, and the other to south of the existing bridge. In Sacramento, one ramp would be constructed north of the existing bridge, the other would be to the south and would be designed to accommodate maintenance vehicles to allow Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) to access the bridge for their routine maintenance activities and to provide City maintenance or emergency vehicle access, when required. The new ramps would provide user connectivity to existing pathways and travel routes for bicyclists and pedestrians (commuting and recreational use). Stairways may be incorporated into one ramp on each side of the river.
