School Way Bridge

The Mendocino County Department of Transportation (Mendo DoT) is planning to replace the existing School WayBridge. The new bridge will be constructed immediately north (upstream) from the existing bridge. Construction is expected to begin in the spring of 2014 and be completed that same year before the start of the rainy season. The existing bridge will remain in service during construction. It may be necessary to close one lane of the existing bridge during some portions of the project but the bridge itself will remain open to both regular passenger travel as well as to emergency vehicles.

RVCWD domestic and irrigation water mains will need to be relocated from the existing bridge to the new bridge. RVCWD expects minimal interruption to service during the transition. As the project progresses RVCWD will consult with the design engineers, Quincy Engineering, Inc. and the selected construction firm to ensure that the transition has as little impact as possible. Any customers who must be impacted will be notified in advance.

RVCWD will explore all possible funding options for the cost of the water main relocation. Because of the contractual agreement that allows a water district to locate facilities within a county right-of way, the cost of relocation is generally the responsibility of the water district. If there is no outside funding available, RVCWD will have to consider the impact of a project of this expense on its capital budget.
