Document Description
The project proposes to construct a bridge over Murrieta Creek to connect Avenida Alvarado with Overland Drive in the City of Temecula (Riverside County). The Murrieta Creek Bridge at Overland Drive would be a concrete girder structure spanning approximately 348 linear feet over Murrieta Creek. The bridge would accommodate four through travel lanes (two lanes in each direction), left-turn lane(s), and two 5-foot-wide shoulders served as Class II bike lanes, for a curb-to-curb width of 68 feet. In addition, a 6-foot-wide sidewalk would be included on the southern side of the bridge for pedestrians to cross the creek. The existing bike trail on the west side of the creek would intersect with the extended Overland Drive by a signal-controlled at-grade crossing. Upon completion of the Murrieta Creek bridge, the proposed street configuration would be consistent with the four-lane roadway segment on Overland Drive to the east. In addition to construction of the bridge, various roadway and utility improvements would occur at the western and eastern bridge approaches. Specifically, the project would include intersection improvements to Overland Drive/Enterprise Circle West and Diaz Road/Avenida Alvarado, such as the installation of traffic signals and associated signing, striping, streetlights, and utilities. Traffic signals and streetlights would also be installed at the Overland Drive/Commerce Center Drive intersection. Reconstruction and roadway improvements along Diaz Road and Avenida Alvarado would include undergrounding electrical utilities, construction of curbs, gutters, and sidewalks, relocating sewer and water facilities, and adding traffic signage and striping. The project would also include railing architectural treatment and landscaping modifications or improvements in the right-of-way along the bridge approach, at the Overland Drive/Enterprise Circle West and Diaz Road/Avenida Alvarado intersections, and on Diaz Road and Overland Drive.
