Manning Avenue Bridge at the Kings River

Reedley, CA

Cornerstone's experience with federally funded bridge projects was essential in acquiring the replacement funding for the existing Kings River Bridge at Manning Avenue. In order to justify the complete replacement of the existing bridge and obtain federal replacement funding, Cornerstone performed a life cycle cost analysis that showed that replacing the 1974 structure was less expensive and was a better use of public funds compared to rehabilitating and retrofitting the existing bridge. Cornerstone also identified additional benefits of the complete replacement including; eliminating constraints to allow the road approaches to meet current design standards, a relatively maintenance free state of the art bridge, and increased safety for recreational users of the river.
