Avila Beach Drive Bridge Seismic Retrofit Project Starting in Avila Beach, CA


Please note the SLO County Dept. of Public Works will begin a seismic retrofit project on the existing Avila Beach Drive bridge over San Luis Obispo Creek. The bridge provides the only public access road to Port San Luis and Diablo Canyon Power Plant.

A 2020 PG & E study on evacuation routes identified this bridge as a concern of potential collapse during an earthquake.  The seismic retrofit will assure the evacuation route and upgrade the bridge to current codes.




The seismic retrofit elements include:
*Cable restrainers and strengthening of bridge connections
*A new approach slab and stabilization at the east end of the bridge
*Removal and replacement of unsound concrete on the bridge supports
*Removal and replacement of existing asphalt on the bridge surface with a new polyester concrete deck overlay


Souza Construction has been awarded the contract to perform the work.  The project is beginning this week and will start with work under the bridge as a first phase of construction.


Work on the roadway will begin AFTER Labor Day.  No work will be done during weekends or holidays. Work in the roadway will occur only during off-peak hours with single-lane closures, anticipating maximum 10-minute delays.  Bicycle and pedestrian traffic will be maintained at all times during construction.  Work is expected to be completed by the end of 2018. 


If you have any questions contact:
Matt Reinhart
Project Manager
