The project is located on Lower Sycamore Creek from U.S. Highway 101 to about 100 feet upstream from the Punta Gorda Street Bridge. The project will widen the creek channel and remove and replace the Punta Gorda Street Bridge. Widening the channel will increase the channel's capacity for flood water and is intended to reduce the impacts of flooding on properties adjacent to Lower Sycamore Creek.
Punta Gorda Street will be closed during the bridge demolition and construction portions of the project. Detours and alternate routes for motorists and pedestrians will be provided.
