The purpose of the project is to bring Hare Creek Bridge up to current design standards by widening the existing structure and upgrading bridge rails. The existing bridge will also be seismically retrofitted and rehabilitated.

Project Description

The project will widen the existing Hare Creek Bridge by approximately 17 feet to accommodate two 12-foot wide lanes, two 8-foot wide shoulders and a 6-foot wide separated pedestrian walkway on the west side of the widened structure. The existing bridge rails and approach guard rail will be upgraded to current standards.
