Construction of the Cathedral Oaks Road Bridge was completed March 18, 2016. The contract for the bridge replacement was awarded to Granite Construction by the Board of Supervisors on April 1, 2014 and work began on April 28, 2014. The contract allowed 445 working days to complete the work, which was accomplished in 435 days.
The new bridge provides the traveling public a seismically updated bridge with standard lane widths and new traffic signals. Another benefit is improved access for pedestrians and bicycles on both east and west bound lanes of the bridge. Design and construction oversight were completed using a team of County staff and consultants.
The project was constructed for $3.2 million. Of this, 88.53 percent was funded from the Federal Highway Program, and 11.47 percent was provided by state and local sources. The Public Works Department would like to thank local residents, cyclists, pedestrians, and the traveling public for their patience and cooperation during this much needed bridge replacement.
