About the Project
The existing Azalea Avenue Bridge (State Br. No. 27C-0124) was reportedly constructed over Fairfax Creek in 1930. The cast-in-place reinforced concrete T-beam structure is a simple span bridge, nearly 12 feet above the creek bed. It is approximately 31 feet long and 30 feet wide, and was designed to accommodate two narrow lanes of traffic, with a sidewalk on each side.
The project will go through a full National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) environmental studies and regulatory permitting. Public presentations and workshops are planned during the environmental, design and construction phases of the project. The design and environmental process are expected to take approximately 30 months, and construction will take nearly 12 months, once each phase of the project is funded.
The initial contract for preliminary design and environmental phases of the bridge replacement project was approved by the Town Council in September and executed on September 15, 2016.
