Document Description
The City of Madera proposes to construct a new vehicular bridge along the proposed Westberry Boulevard Alignment crossing the Fresno River in the northwest portion of the City of Madera, to improve traffic circulation and to avoid any future congestion on existing upstream bridges at Granada Drive and Schnoor Avenue. The proposed bridge crossing structure would be approximately 408 feet long by approximately 92 feet wide and would accommodate two 11-foot traveled ways in each direction, one 14-foot-wide center median, two 6-foot shoulder/bike lanes with 1-foot buffer striping, two 9-foot sidewalks, and two 1-foot concrete barriers (Type 732SW) with tubular hand railing along each side of the bridge deck. An earthen irrigation canal runs along the exterior side of each riverbank. Both earthen canal alignments are owned by the United States Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) and operated by the Madera Irrigation District (MID). The Vern McCullough Fresno River Trail runs along the south bank of the river. The proposed bridge structure would consist of an 8-span cast-in-place prestressed concrete flat slab bridge supported on reinforced concrete seat-type abutments with 42-inch diameter cast-in-drilled-hole (CIDH) piles and 42-inch diameter CIDH piles at the piers.
