Canyon Road Bridge Pedestrian Walkway Remains Closed – February 2019

On February 15, EBMUD reported that a portion of the hillside on EBMUD property above the Canyon Road Bridge began moving. The land movement dislocated an underground storm drain pipe that drains into the creek adjacent to the bridge and compromised the pedestrian asphalt pathway. The damaged pathway was removed and the dislocated pipe was reattached. The Town is working on a plan to reopen the pedestrian bridge walkway and asphalt pathway by mid-May. Town staff and geotechnical engineering consultants continue to evaluate and monitor the situation. Town engineering experts have determined that the temporary bridge is safe and the newly built retaining wall system for the temporary bridge protected the bridge by deflecting the landslide as designed.
