El Camino Real Bridge Replacement Project, Santa Margarita

The purpose of the project is to improve public safety along this portion of the roadway because the existing bridge is deteriorating and hydraulically inadequate. Implementation of the project will improve the roadway alignment with incorporation of a consistent 55-mile per hour posted speed corridor and add a center turn lane. The project site is in Supervisorial District 2.

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has determined that the existing bridge should be replaced and is eligible for federal funding.  The proposed bridge project will construct a new wider bridge at the same location. A temporary bridge will be constructed to provide through-access during construction.  Construction will last one year and is anticipated to start the summer of 2024.

 Redistricting is now complete with the adoption of the new districts. This project now is in District 2.
