State Route 41 Stratford Kings River Bridge Replacement
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes to replace the Kings River Bridge (Number 45-0007) on State Route 41 southwest of Stratford in Kings County. The project limits run from post mile 30.6 to post mile 33.0.
The purpose of the project is to address the superstructure, substructure, and seismic deficiencies of the existing bridge to ensure the safety and reliability of State Route 41.
The existing Kings River Bridge (Number 45-0007) was built in 1942 and widened in 1987. The bridge continues to deteriorate, and the columns that support the bridge continue to corrode. The bottom of the bridge’s widened portions shows signs of cracks about 5 feet long and spaced as close as 3 feet in the center. Further studies found that replacing the bridge was required to address the structural and seismic deficiencies. The columns would continue to corrode and deteriorate until they could no longer support the bridge.
Estimated Funding Breakdown
Construction Cost: $15,550,000
