Document Description
The Project is limited to removal of burned infrastructure and installation of a new replacement bridge over Clear Creek. In 2020, the CZU Fire Complex destroyed an existing 10-foot wide wood beam and wood decked bridge, which was used to access a single family residence. Remnants of the destroyed bridge and its foundations will be removed in its entirety before construction on the new bridge commences. The new bridge will be 25-feet long by 20 feet wide, and will be supported by steel beams with a weight limit of 25 tons. A portion of Clear Creek will be temporarily dewatered to accommodate construction activities and access.
