Alpine Meadows Bridge Replacement Project Garners Two Awards
The Sacramento chapters of both the APWA and the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) have named the Alpine Meadows Bridge Replacement Project as a Project of the Year. The 100-foot bridge, built in 1970, was structurally deficient and functionally obsolete, with a Caltrans sufficiency rating of 57.4 in 2007. The bridge spanned the Truckee River and served as the only entrance to the Alpine Meadows Resort.
The County programmed the bridge to be replaced, updated, and widened under the Federal Highway Bridge Program. The approach roadway was also widened and realigned.
For this project, NCE designed the utility infrastructure for relocating all water utilities and communications conduits. In addition to preparing 30%, 60%, and 90% design plans, NCE was responsible for permitting and prepared the Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan for the project.
