Valley Springs, CA…Beginning on Monday, October 18, 2021 Public Works will be replacing the timber decking on the Gillam Road Bridge over Youngs Creek. The goal is to replace the existing decaying deck with new non-treated timber decking to provide safe passage for vehicles. This is a one lane bridge and the timber decking is designed to accommodate 7 ton vehicles. The deck will also include timber planks along the wheel lines as protective wearing surfaces.
Public Works has contracted with Cole Tiscornia Construction to complete this work. Crews will be working in the area from 10/18/2021 through 10/22/21 between the hours of 7:00 AM and 5:00 PM.
The Bridge will be closed from 10/18/2021 to 10/22/21. The traveling public must utilize detours during construction. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
All work will for this project will be confined to the bridge deck, with no ground disturbance within the streambed. Measures will be taken to ensure that no material enters the streambed below.
Calaveras County and our construction contractor Cole Tiscornia Construction appreciate your cooperation and will do everything possible to complete this important project on schedule, with minimal impact to the local community.
