Hunter and Panther Bridge Replacement

A crane installs arches on the Hunter and Panther Creek bridges as part of a bridge replacement project along U.S. 101 north of Klamath in Del Norte County.

This project replaces the Hunter and Panther Creek Bridges along U.S. 101 north of Klamath in Del Norte County. This project is needed because both bridges are narrow, do  not meet current seismic standards, and are past their 50-year design life.

Screenshot of Facebook post that reads "Progress photos! Construction and one-way traffic control continue as we replace the Hunter Creek and Panther Creek Bridges along U.S. 101 a little north of Klamath in Del Norte County. These photos depict the construction of the new Panther Creek Bridge’s arches. The old Hunter and Panther Creek bridges were narrow, didn't meet current seismic standards, and were past their 50-year design life.  As you likely know we are currently using a temporary detour bridge and traffic control system in the area as we build new bridges adjacently. With the help of $29.1 million from SB 1, this project is expected to be completed by the end of 2023.

The project costs $38 million and includes $29 million in funding from Senate Bill 1 (SB 1), the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017. This project is scheduled to be completed in fall of 2022. Road projects progress through construction phases more quickly based on the availability of SB 1 funds, including projects that are partially funded by SB 1. SB 1 provides $5 billion in transportation funding annually split between the state and local agencies.
