Avila Beach Drive Bridge Seismic Retrofit

The Bridge is subject to collapse during an earthquake and the seismic retrofit will assure an evacuation route and will upgrade the bridge to current codes.

  1. The County's contractor will begin work under the bridge in mid-July and finish work under the bridge at the end of October.  Work under the bridge includes:
    • Repair of two (2) pierwall jackets.
    • Installation of shear keys & cable restrainers on the underside of the bridge deck.
  2. Work on top of the bridge will begin after Labor Day, September 4, 2018.  The work on top in the roadway includes:
    • The north abutment will be strengthened by installing restrainers into the soil behind the abutment.
    • The south abutment will be strengthened by reinforcing the existing abutment and connecting a concrete approach slab to the abutment.
    • The existing asphalt concrete (AC) deck overlay will be removed and replaced with a new polyester concrete deck overlay.
