Norwood Avenue Bridge and Roadway Realignment,
Project Dates: 2007-2011
Client: City of Sacramento
Cost: $10.8 Million
Project Description: The project replaced the structurally deficient Norwood Avenue Bridge over Arcade Creek with a new bridge that meets current Caltrans standards. Construction included a new and higher concrete bridge with two travel lanes, bike lanes, sidewalks, street lighting and a new approach roadway between the intersections of Fairbanks Avenue and Lindley Way.
Services: PARIKH Consultants, Inc. provided a geotechnical report for a new bridge structure and roadway across the Natomas East Main Drain Canal and Union Pacific Railroad tracks. The project required embankments, retaining walls, realignment work, and new pavement. Large diameter cast-in-drilled-hole piles were used for structural support. The project required slope protection for the mitigation of scour and stream bed degradation. PARIKH obtained permits from agencies including County Environmental Health, City of Sacramento, RD-1000, American River Flood Control Agency, Sacramento Regional Flood Control Agency, and others. The firm provided construction materials testing as part of the QC/QA program that included concrete, aggregate, asphalt concrete, etc. Work was completed on time, within budget, and in accordance with Caltrans requirements. The project received the 2012 APWA Project of the Year Award.
