THE BRIDGES OF VENTURA COUNTY

Well, two bridge projects in Ventura County, to be more specific. The first project, which began in February, widens the bridges at Sisar Creek and Santa Paula Creek on the west side of Highway 150 in Santa Paula.  The other, started in August, replaces the aging bridge on Highway 150 at San Antonio Creek in Ojai. Both projects will increase safety and complete in 2010. The accompanying photos depict construction on the Santa Paula project.

 

The west side of the bridge is being widened at various sections to enhance safety. While Caltrans Construction works above the bridge, taggers have been busy below. Falsework, or temporary bridge structures, provide a framework for construction. When the bridge widening is completed, in 2010, it will help keep traffic moving on Highway 150.
