This project will replace the Dr. Fine Bridge over the Smith River on Route 101 north of Crescent City. Built in 1940, the existing bridge is near the end of its useful life. A new bridge will better accommodate vehicles, pedestrians, and bicyclists. The project is expected to cost around $50 Million.
