About the Event
Jesse has been managing the I Street Bridge Replacement Project since the kick off in 2013. He will be providing an update on the project, the twists and turns in the delivery process, recent accomplishments, and the work left to do.
The existing I Street Bridge is more than 100-years old; the lanes are too narrow to serve buses, there are no bicycle lanes, and the sidewalks are too narrow to meet current accessibility standards. The project will include the construction of a new bridge upstream of the existing I Street Bridge. The bridge will provide a new connection across the Sacramento River between the Sacramento Railyards and the West Sacramento Washington Neighborhood planned developments. It will serve automobile, bicycle, transit, and pedestrian users. The existing I Street Bridge’s lower deck will continue to serve as a railroad crossing, and the upper deck is currently being studied and planned for use by pedestrians and bicyclists. The approach viaducts to the existing I Street Bridge will be demolished, resulting in better access to the waterfront in both cities.
