- Bear Valley Road Bridge Over the Mojave River Rehabilitation Project
- The existing Bear Valley Road Bridge over the Mojave River is one of only four crossings of the Mojave River in the Apple Valley, Victorville and Hesperia areas. The Bear Valley Road Bridge is an eleven-span, 819-foot long, reinforced concrete T-beam bridge supported on reinforced concrete pier walls and cantilever abutments. Both the abutments and piers are founded on driven, precast, and prestressed concrete piles. The bridge was originally constructed in 1963 as a two-lane bridge. It was widened to the north in 1988 to accommodate four travel lanes. Between 2004 and 2006, the bridge was re-striped to six lanes with no median or shoulders to accommodate increasing traffic demands. Because the existing Bear Valley Road Bridge has a sufficiency rating of 52 and is Structurally Deficient and Functionally Obsolete, it qualifies for rehabilitation funding under the HBP. The low sufficiency rating is mainly due to low marks for the superstructure, bridge deck, and bridge geometrics. See NOC for full details.
