I Street Bridge Replacement
The cities of Sacramento and West Sacramento both realized there was a need to construct a new I Street Bridge. The existing 100 year old bridge does not meet today’s accessibility standards. The new bridge will cross the Sacramento River between the Sacramento Railyards and the West Sacramento Washington planned developments and provide a new bicycle, pedestrian, and automobile crossing.
The existing I Street Bridge would continue to be used by the railroad. The approach viaducts to the existing I Street Bridge will be demolished, which should result in better access to the waterfront in both cities.
