Salmon Creek Bridge Replacement

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes to replace the Salmon Creek Bridge on Route 1 in Mendocino County. The current bridge, built in 1950, has a concrete deck over steel beams. The bridge is functionally obsolete because it is narrow and does not meet current standards for shoulders and guardrails. Maintenance costs are high because the steel beams must be repainted regularly.

Latest News:

Caltrans will hold an open house/informational meeting on Thursday, March 23, 2017 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Mendocino High School, 10700 Ford Street, in Mendocino.

The purpose of the open house/informational meeting is to introduce the environmental consulting firm, ICF, which will be assisting Caltrans in performing environmental studies and prepare the environmental documents for both projects, including a community impact assessment. At the meeting, Caltrans and ICF will provide information about the two bridge projects, and the public will have the opportunity to ask questions and share information about issues, ideas, or concerns.

Public participation and engagement is a key aspect in developing the community impact assessment. This meeting will be the first of several community meetings hosted by Caltrans to seek public input, as well as describe the relevant conditions, the potential impacts of the project on the community and its neighborhoods, and share the extent of the identified impacts and potential solutions to best avoid, minimize, or mitigate for any adverse impacts.
