MGE assisted the County in obtaining HBP funding for the project, completed the preliminary engineering, coordinated the completion of environmental studies, organized community involvement activities, prepared permit applications, interfaced with the Forest Service and Caltrans, coordinated right-of-way surveys, prepared legal descriptions, assisted with right-of-way acquisition for both permanent takes and temporary easements, prepared the PS&E for the replacement of the bridge and approach roadways, assembled the contract bid documents, and provided assistance to the County during advertisement and construction. The original structure was a single lane bridge and structurally deficient. The replacement bridge consisted of a single-span cast-in-place reinforced concrete slab structure constructed on a new curved horizontal alignment. In addition to the bridge replacement, the project included the construction of approach roadways and a temporary detour.
