Tipton Bridge Replacement Project

Project Description (06-0Q910)

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes to replace the entire bridge deck, rails, and exterior girders on the Avenue 152 overcrossing on State Route 99. The project would replace the exterior girders due to impacts by heavy-load vehicles. Also, the bridge profile would be raised from 14.9 feet to provide a standard 16.5 feet of vertical clearance to traffic on State Route 99.
