The Yellow Creek Bridge is a four-span steel girder bridge measuring 192 feet in length and 23.6 feet in width. The bridge was constructed in 1934 and has exceeded its design service life. The bridge has extensive and ongoing mainten- ance concerns and does not meet current standards for shoulder widths. Caltrans is currently in the process of conducting environmental studies and preparing preliminary design, which will be utilized to prepare an Initial Study to comply with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). Environmental studies will investigate potential impacts to the environment. The Safety Roadside Rest Area facilities and parking will not be available during construction. The Pacific Crest Trail, Indian Springs Trail, and the Yellow Creek Trail will remain open to pedestrian and equestrian use, while parking will not be available on- site. The proposed project will encroach on the base floodplain. Construction is anticipated to begin during the summer of 2017 and will require two years to complete. Apublic information meeting is scheduled for November 19, 2013 from 4:00 to 6:30 p.m. at the Belden Town Resort and Lodge, 14785 Belden Town Road, Belden, CA. We encourage you to attend the meeting and review the project information.
