The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is proposing to upgrade existing bridge railing to current standards at four locations on the Avenue of the Giants/Route 254 in Humboldt County. These locations are Ohman Creek Bridge, Elk Creek Bridge, Bridge Creek Bridge, and Bear Creek Bridge.

The four bridges included in this project were all built more than 70 years ago and are in need of improvements. Three of the bridges have timber railing which is deteriorating and does not meet current standards.
