Sacramento Street Bridge

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Sacramento Street Bridge over Mare Island Railroad is located between Illinois Street and Farragut Ave on Sacramento Street. The bridge was originally built in 1913 and widened in the 1930s.

The existing bridge is a steel-framed structure with a concrete slab.

Seismic engineers identified the bridge to have seismic vulnerabilities per the current standards. The City of Vallejo received a grant application approval to replace the bridge from Caltrans under the Highway Bridge Program (HBP). Funding sources for the project include 88.5% federal funds from HBP and 11.5% local matching funds.

The new bridge and required roadway approach work will bring the bridge crossing up to current design standards in all aspects, including horizontal and vertical clearances for Railroad and addressing the seismic deficiencies of the existing bridge. Modifications to the existing roadway approaches required to meet the new bridge configurations are a part of the project. The City of Vallejo is currently starting the construction phase of this Project.

    The structural components of the Sacramento Street Bridge, including the bridge span, abutment supports, retaining walls, and deep pile foundations, are complete. The final work needed to prepare the bridge to open for traffic on Sacramento Street, including the roadway approach work, are under construction now.

    While poor soil conditions severely delayed the construction of the bridge, it is anticipated to be partially opened to through traffic by the end of the month, pending weather events. This partial opening of the bridge to traffic will allow completion of the second stage of construction which includes final pavement, sidewalk, and utility work.

    Once the Bridge has been opened to through traffic, it is anticipated that the remaining work can be completed by the end of January 2022, however, additional delays due to winter rain events are expected in the coming months.

    We will continue to keep you updated on the timeline.
