Apparent Low Bid for Bridge Maintenance Project on Interstate 5

SAN DIEGO – Various bridges along Interstate 5 between the Birmingham Drive overcrossing and Cristianitos Road will soon be scheduled for preventative maintenance.  Workers will replace joint seals and apply a sealant overcoat, according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).

Penhall Co. of Anaheim submitted the apparent low bid of $1.2 million for Caltrans review and approval.  Once approved, the five month project could begin by June.  Work will take place mainly at night with a minimum disruption to traffic.
