HOLMES-LARABEE BRIDGE REPLACEMENT PROJECT

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The County plans to replace the low-water crossing with a full-height, full-service bridge that allows residents, emergency vehicles, and resource equipment year-round access across the Eel River. To do this, the County has enlisted the help of Quincy Engineering to design this modern, safe bridge.

 

Once completed, the Holmes-Larabee Bridge Replacement Project will reduce travel time by 45 minutes and will avoid travel on a steep and narrow gravel logging road across private property and prone to landslides.

Over the course of the next several years, the County and Quincy Engineering team will work together to design and construct the new bridge, which also involves obtaining environmental clearance and a variety of regulatory agency permits.

The following design alternatives were presented at the February 2019 public meeting:

Milestones

Phase I (3 years):

  • Prepare Alternatives Analysis and Bridge Type Selection

  • Prepare Project Report

  • Develop CEQA/NEPA Environmental Documents, technical studies and regulatory permits

 

Phase II (2 years):

  • Complete Geotechnical Design Report and Hydraulics Report

  • Develop detailed final plans, specifications and cost estimates

  • Coordinate any required utilities relocations and right-of-way acquisitions

  • Project goes to bid

 

Phase III (2 years):

  • Construction
