Salmon Creek Bridge Replacement

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes to replace the Salmon Creek Bridge on Route 1 in Mendocino County. The current bridge, built in 1950, has a concrete deck over steel beams. The bridge is functionally obsolete because it is narrow and does not meet current standards for shoulders and guardrails. Maintenance costs are high because the steel beams must be repainted regularly.

Latest News:

A Public Open House will be held on Thursday, April 24, at Albion Elementary School from 5-8PM. Caltrans staff will provide displays and be on hand to answer questions about the Albion River Bridge and Salmon Creek Bridge Replacement projects. More details will follow.
