Albion River Bridge Rehabilitation/Replacement

This project will evaluate rehabilitating or replacing the Albion River Bridge on Route 1 in Mendocino County near the town of Albion.

This project is needed because the bridge is narrow, it does not meet current standards for shoulders and guardrails, and maintenance costs are high.

Latest News:

Caltrans will hold an open house/informational meeting on Thursday, March 23, 2017 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Mendocino High School, 10700 Ford Street, in Mendocino.

The purpose of the open house/informational meeting is to introduce the environmental consulting firm, ICF, which will be assisting Caltrans in performing environmental studies and prepare the environmental documents for both projects, including a community impact assessment. At the meeting, Caltrans and ICF will provide information about the two bridge projects, and the public will have the opportunity to ask questions and share information about issues, ideas, or concerns.

Public participation and engagement is a key aspect in developing the community impact assessment. This meeting will be the first of several community meetings hosted by Caltrans to seek public input, as well as describe the relevant conditions, the potential impacts of the project on the community and its neighborhoods, and share the extent of the identified impacts and potential solutions to best avoid, minimize, or mitigate for any adverse impacts.

Caltrans and their consultants have conducted two investigations at the bridge site. The first, completed in June 2014, termed a "bridge Survey," determined the concentration of wood preservative constituents in the structural members of the bridge for waste classification, the level of lead present in the bridge rail paint system, and if asbestos containing materials were present. This "survey" investigation provided a group of "constituents of concern" (COCs) used to direct the follow up investigation. The second investigation, termed a "preliminary Site Investigation" (PSI), completed in December 2014, focused on determining if a release of any COCs had occurred in the immediate vicinity of the bridge. All investigations to date have occurred within the 100-foot wide State Highway Right of Way at the bridge site.
