Document Title
SR 1/17 Separation Girder Replacement
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The project proposes to replace a girder and associated bridge improvements at the Route 1 NB/ 17 Separation (Br. No. 36-0069R) in Santa Cruz County at Post Mile 17.02 in the City of Santa Cruz. The improvement proposes to replace Girder 5 of Span 2 with a less deep girder to gain additional vertical clearance to prevent high load hit impacts. The purpose of this project is to increase the bridge vertical clearance to address the high-load hits to this structure, thereby, improving public safety, reducing future costly repairs to the damaged girders, and maximizing the efficiency of this heavily traveled transportation corridor. There is a need for this project because the girder on Route1/17 separation (36-0069R) in Santa Cruz is being damaged from a high load hit. If not replaced with a shallower depth girder, it will deteriorate further.
