Loma Bridge, originally constructed in 1914, will soon undergo a seismic
retrofit and rehabilitation. The bridge
will be closed for 18 months, with construction beginning in summer 2015 and
the anticipated completion in winter 2016. The scope of the project involves replacement
of bridge deck; rehabilitation of the arches and spandrel columns; and strengthening
the end piers. The estimated cost of the
project is approximately $16 million.
Project funding consists of $13.3 million in federal funds and $2.7
million City funds. The La Loma Bridge Project is a collaborative effort between the City of Pasadena and the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).
construction traffic will be detoured to other bridges across the Arroyo
Seco. Residents will be able to cross
using the Colorado Boulevard Bridge to access areas north of La Loma Bridge,
and will be able to use the San Rafael Bridge to access areas south of La Loma
Bridge. The Department of Public Works
is creating a traffic management plan to assist the flow of traffic.
