Pudding Creek Bridge Widening And Bridge Rail Upgrade Project

Initial Study with Negative Declaration June 2020

The project proposes to widen the Pudding Creek Bridge on State Route (SR) 1 at post mile 62.12 in Mendocino County. The proposed project would widen the bridge on both sides to accommodate two 12-foot wide lanes, two 8-foot wide shoulders, and two 6-foot wide separated pedestrian walkways and upgrade the bridge rails. The project also proposes “Complete Streets” improvements by constructing sidewalks on both sides of SR 1 from Pudding Creek Bridge south to Elm Street and north to Pudding Creek Drive and drainage improvements and relocation of the City of Fort Bragg’s waterline from the Pudding Creek Dam to SR 1.
