The 5th Street Bridge Replacement Project is Yuba City’s largest and most complex multi-agency public works project to date
replacing the now functionally obsolete two lane bridge built in 1958.
Goals & Objectives
The goal of replacing the 5th Street Bridge is to enhance public safety and upgrade this vital arterial facility with Caltrans standards and reduce travel delays in and around the project area by adding two additional through lanes across the Feather River.
Limits & Improvements
The 165 acre project site over the Feather River is set for construction for the new 5th Street Bridge, a 4-lane, 10 span cast-in-place post-tensioned concrete box girder bridge. It will connect 5th Street in Marysville to Bridge Street in Yuba City, and include construction of a new 2nd Street Bridge in Yuba City. The project also includes three new traffic signals, roadway widenings and realignments, new access ramps, relocation of existing utilities, improvements to adjacent pedestrian access, bicycle trails, levee access, removal and replacement of trees in floodways, retaining walls and concrete barriers, earthwork, paving and landscaping, with respect to all wildlife and environment permits. This project also includes the eventual demolition of the existing 5th Street Bridge and two UPRR bridges.
