Potato Slough Bridge Bearing Pads

Project Facts


The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes to replace failed elastomeric bearing pads and joint seal assemblies on the Little Potato Slough Bridge (Bridge Number 29-0101), which is west of the city of Lodi in San Joaquin County on State Route 12 at post mile R4.4. Caltrans also proposes to remove a portion of structural concrete to provide an access opening in the soffit and install temporary falsework on a pile foundation to temporarily support the bridge structure during the replacement of the elastomeric bearing pads and joint seal assemblies.

Project Benefits


The purpose of the project is to provide integrity to the structure and minimize future major bridge rehabilitation needs by replacing the failed elastomeric bearing pads.


Based on the Bridge Inspection Reports, rehabilitation of Little Potato Slough Bridge is required to address the failed elastomeric bearing pads and joint seal assemblies at Span 5 and Span 20 (bent 21, hinge 20).
