[ARCHIVED] San Gabriel breaks ground on $8.9 million Alhambra Wash Bridge

 San Gabriel breaks ground on $8.9 million Alhambra Wash Bridge

The City of San Gabriel, in partnership with the County of Los Angeles, broke ground on the Del Mar Avenue/Alhambra Wash Bridge Replacement Project in a ceremony held earlier today. Located south of Valley Boulevard above the Alhambra Wash, the new $8.9 million bridge will replace an existing 83-year old structure that is now classified as structurally deficient and functionally obsolete.

“We’re pleased to break ground on this new bridge with our partners at Los Angeles County,” said Algis Marciuska, Principal Civil Engineer for the City of San Gabriel. “This new bridge will provide a beautiful, safe and modern entrance to Valley Boulevard.”

Using concrete components, the new structure will feature architectural treatments that will provide a distinctive entry point into the Golden Mile District.

“This new bridge will enhance traffic safety for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists and will reduce congestion and pollution for our residents here in San Gabriel,” said Kathryn Barger, Los Angeles County Supervisor for the Fifth Supervisorial District.

During construction, traffic control measures will be implemented along Del Mar Avenue to allow one-lane of traffic in each direction, at all times. In addition, a temporary detour ramp and traffic signal will be installed to mitigate traffic.

The project is expected to be completed in 2020 using funds from the Federal Highway Bridge Program, with additional funding provided by the City of San Gabriel.
