BRIDGE & PROJECT DETAILS

The newly constructed 480-foot-long bridge will be approximately 86 feet wide and feature:

  • 4 vehicle travel lanes, 2 in each direction
  • 2, 8-foot-wide bike/cart paths, 1 in each direction
  • 2, 6-foot-wide sidewalks, 1 in each direction
  • A 9-foot, 8-inch raised center median

The project also will complete bridge approach roadway improvements (including drainage) to accommodate the raised profile for the bridge, and it will tie into the CV LINK multi-use trail under the bridge and at two secondary connecter trails from Dune Palms Road.
