Winters Road Bridge Replacement at Putah Creek

The construction of this $12 million project was completed in November of 2015. This Bridge Replacement project, a joint effort between Solano County and the City of Winters, consisted of the replacement of a 420-foot long, three-span, earth-filled concrete arch bridge that was constructed in 1907, and was eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. MGE prepared bridge planning studies, coordinated identification of architectural themes, completed the preliminary engineering, participated in public outreach activities, prepared right-of-way acquisition exhibits, and completed the design and PS&E of the replacement bridge and approach roadway improvements. The replacement structure consists of a 453-foot long, 3-span cast-in-place reinforced concrete box girder superstructure with haunched soffits to simulate the appearance of arched.spans. Additional architectural features including recessed reveals and texture treatments were used to give the bridge architectural character comparable with the historic structure it replaced.
