Measure I: Rt. 210 Muscoy Bridge Retrofit
A seismic retrofit of the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) bridge (also known as the Muscoy Bridge) over Route 210, in the City of San Bernardino, began construction in February, 2009 and was completed in April 2010.
The project was needed to make the bridge conform to current Caltrans seismic standards. It involved major engineering features such as replacing the existing steel bearings and installing new bracket assemblies to the existing bridge structure.
The retrofit of the Muscoy UPRR Bridge will require intermittent lane closures on Route 210 in this area to allow for the temporary re-striping of the freeway. In addition, the eastbound and westbound carpool lanes of Route 210 in the area will be closed for the majority of the time during construction.
Construction cost about $1.1 million, with funding from Measure I, San Bernardino County’s half cent sales tax for transportation projects.
