Granite has been awarded a $14 million contract by the City of Palo Alto for the Highway 101 Adobe Creek Pedestrian/Bike Bridge Project in California.
Brent Fogg, Regional Vice President for Granite, says: “The Highway 101 Adobe Creek Pedestrian/Bike Bridge Project will provide improved access to the Baylands and West Bayshore Road for residents walking and biking in the area.”
Granite says the new overpass will replace the existing Benjamin Leftkowitz Underpass which is only available half of the year due to seasonal flooding.
The scope of work includes the construction of the principle span structures of self-weathering steel trusses over Highway 101, the east and west cast-in-place concrete approach structures, three trailheads, site amenities, signage, landscaping, lighting and improvements to the Adobe Creek Reach Trail.
Construction is scheduled to begin in March and is anticipated to be complete by spring 2021.
