Body
DEPARTMENT RECOMMENDATION
The Community Development Agency,Transportation Division (Transportation) recommends that the Board sign the Acquisition Agreement for Public Purposes for the Sly Park Road at Clear Creek Corssing - Bridge Replacement Project, CIP No. 77115 (Project).  The easements are necessary to construct the Project.
 
DISCUSSION/BACKGROUND
The existing bridge was built in 1936 and is now sub-standard in its design with current road usage.  Recent inspections indicate scour problems with bridge's footings and abutments.  Due to functional obsolescence, rehabilitation of the existing bridge is infeasible.
 
The Project will replace the existing bridge on Sly Park Road at Clear Creek, as well as realign and widen approximately 965 feet of Sly Park Road.  A two-way left-turn lane will be included to improve safety for vehicles turning onto and off of Clear Creek Road.  The Project will also serve to improve drainage along Sly Park Rd.
 
The Board of Supervisors approved the California Environmental Quality Act document for this project on September 14, 2010 (Item No. 18).
