Napa, CA— Parsons Brinckerhoff (PB) has been awarded a contract by the city of Napa to provide construction management services for the construction of the First Street Bridge over the Napa River.
The project, the last of four bridges to be built by the city of Napa as part of a Napa County flood control effort, involves removal of an existing 1914 bridge and construction of a new T-beam bridge at First Street. The new structure will be a three-span, cast-in-place tee-beam bridge approximately 165 feet long. It will incorporate a number of aesthetic features, including glass sidewalks, obelisks and architectural concrete. The project also includes improvements to adjoining roadways and approaches, and requires that roadway profiles be raised an average of 3 to 4 feet in many locations.
As the overall construction manager for the project, PB will serve as the main point of contact for the city of Napa. Construction is expected to be completed in late 2009.
