The scoping commenting period for the Vincent Thomas Bridge Deck Replacement Project has closed, but we welcome your feedback and would like to hear from you.

Overview

Vincent Thomas Bridge (VTB) on SR 47 has been in service for 60 years. The deck is rapidly deteriorating due to concrete fatigue, primarily caused by vehicular traffic and heavy truck traffic. Caltrans is proposing the VTB Deck Replacement Project (Project) to replace the entire bridge deck and seismic sensors of the bridge to preserve the functionality and structural integrity of the Vincent Thomas Bridge deck and to enhance the bridge’s overall safety.

Build Alternative

This alternative would replace the entire bridge deck and upgrade barriers, fences, railings, and replace seismic sensors. Construction staging options are included with the Build Alternative.
