Coastland is currently providing construction management and inspection services for this important bridge project in San Rafael.

With the completion of the bridge, pedestrian traffic will be separated from vehicle traffic.

This project consists of all associated work with the fabrication and placement of HID precast concrete piles, construction of concrete abutments, fabrication and installation of the new 136 foot span steel bridge, construction of ADA compliance at grade approaches to the bridge, modification of the existing vehicular bridge sidewalks; installation of methacrylate bridge deck treatment, concrete guardrail, sidewalks, curbs, gutters, striping, electrical fixtures, utility relocations, traffic controls, hot mix asphalt, and retaining walls on Grand Avenue between Second St. and Francisco Blvd. East.
