The Bridge Street Bridge ("Bridge") is a valued historic feature in the City of Arroyo Grande and serves as a primary thoroughfare and landmark in the City’s Historic Village area. During its service life of over 100 years, the Bridge had developed age-related deficiencies that would have caused closure if not addressed.
In February 2020, the City awarded a construction contract to Granite Construction to rehabilitate the bridge which will retain the use of the Bridge while maintaining community safety, accessibility, and historic value. Construction began in June 2020 and is expected to be completed in January 2021. The Bridge is closed during construction but a temporary bridge for non-motorized traffic has been installed.
In October 2020, the City awarded a construction contract to Quincon, Inc. for the construction of the habitat mitigation phase of the project. This phase will mitigate impacts to riparian and wetland habitats associated with the rehabilitation project. Planting will take place in early 2021 and will be monitored and maintained over a five-year window,
The overall project costs are $9.1M and is being funded through the Federal Highway Bridge Program (HBP).
