Recommended action

Adopt a Resolution introducing, reading the title of, and waiving the reading of an ordinance repealing Ordinance No. 2652 that restricted the weight upon and over the bridge over Dry Creek on Lambert Bridge Road #90002, PM10.36. (Fourth District)

end

 

Executive Summary:

The Department of Transportation and Public Works (TPW) has reviewed the January 16, 2018 Caltrans Bridge Inspection Report which concluded that weight restrictions for less than legal loads and legal vehicles on the bridge over Dry Creek on Lambert Bridge Road are no longer required. Once enacted and upon its effective date, the proposed ordinance would remove the weight limitations on this bridge, allowing for removal of all related signage.

 

Discussion:

Lambert Bridge Road carries an average daily traffic (ADT) volume of approximately 1,500 vehicles per day. Lambert Bridge Road services the transportation needs of the immediate unincorporated area and provides a direct connection west to West Dry Creek Road and east to Dry Creek Road. The bridge in question spans Dry Creek and was installed in 1915.

Caltrans staff inspected the bridge on May 10, 2017 and July 24, 2017.  Information generated by the inspections was used to calculate safe load capacity and ratings, using mandated methodologies and criteria. The new load capacity calculations determined that weight restrictions for less than legal loads and legal vehicles are no longer required and Caltrans concluded that the weight restrictions should be rescinded. The January 16, 2018 Caltrans Bridge Inspection Report documents these findings.

Accordingly, TPW is requesting that the Board introduce and later adopt an ordinance repealing Ordinance No. 2652.

The estimated cost of labor and materials to implement the ordinance is $1,500 and appropriations are available within the 2019/2020 Road Maintenance Budget. If approved, staff will begin work to remove the existing bridge weight limit signage and markings approximately 30 days after approval of the ordinance.
