Schedule - Sunset Bridge demolition and reconstruction

We would like to share with you the latest scheduled activities regarding the Sunset Bridge demolition and reconstruction. As you are aware, the new traffic configurations for the Sunset Bridge and adjacent streets will go into effect on May 7. Implementing these new traffic configurations and isolating the work zone will help the Contractor prepare for demolition. The Contractor will be:

· protecting an existing water line in place

· surveying the existing bridge's condition

· removing any hazardous materials that may exist

· installing temporary pipe supports

· removing false deck from inside the bridge; and

· building temporary bents

The demolition schedule will be dependent on what the Contractor encounters during these activities. Demolition could happen as early as the end of May. However, if the conditions are such that additional prep work will be needed, then actual demolition can occur in June. The I-405 Project Team will continue to keep you informed of construction activities as we move forward with the project and in particular the activities related to the Sunset Bridge demolition and reconstruction. Please see attached Sunset Bridge Demolition and Reconstruction Fact Sheet for Frequently Asked Question.
