Town Of Moraga

Canyon Road Bridge Closure Update - June 9, 2017

The Canyon Road Bridge continues to be closed to all traffic. Please use alternate routes. The Town will continue to provide information and updates as they become available. Final fieldwork and analysis has been completed to make a formal presentation and recommendation to the Moraga Town Council on June 14, 2017 at 7:00 pm, in the Council Chambers at 335 Rheem Boulevard, regarding alternatives for re-opening the bridge. The presentation from staff will include a summary of all different alternatives and aspects of the bridge re-opening project, and among other things, information on anticipated costs and potential funding sources. The cost descriptions will include relocating existing utilities, demolishing the existing damaged bridge, installing bridge foundations, drilling 50’ deep piers on the west side of the bridge to protect it from the landslide, erecting temporary traffic signals to operate one lane of traffic, installing required creek protection, and providing engineering and construction management services to implement all required work. The staff report and attachments are available to the public on the Town’s website. Anyone interested in learning more about the status of the bridge reopening can either attend or watch LiveStream video of the Council Meeting. The Town will continue to keep the public informed with updates posted on the Town website and disseminated via Nixle, NextDoor and About Town. Thank you for your continued patience.
