Bridge Replacement Project

Del Mar Avenue/Alhambra Wash Bridge Replacement Project



Replace the Del Mar Avenue Bridge crossing the Alhambra Wash south of Valley Boulevard. The existing bridge is 78 years old and classified as structurally deficient and functionally obsolete due to the condition of the steel structure, the narrow travel width and the need for seismic upgrades.


  • Replace steel with concrete components
  • Widen travel width
  • Add left turn lane into shopping center to alleviate traffic
  • Include architectural treatments on new bridge to provide a visually appealing entry point into the Golden Mile District.


  • Complete environmental studies spring 2013.
  • County to complete studies, right of way acquisition, utility arrangements, and the plan-specification-cost estimate package 2014 - 2015.
  • Advertised for bids, after authorization to advertise received from the State, expected end of year (2016). 
  • Start construction February 2017.
