Purdon Road Bridge Repairs

The County Public Works Department recently began work to rehabilitate the Purdon Road Bridge, located on the South Yuba River.  The bridge was opened to the public in 1895 and Principal Civil Engineer on the project, Joshua Pack, says  the project includes repair and replacement of some of the structural supports as well as cleaning and painting of the bridge.

Pack says painting the bridge will take some special environmental care to make sure contaminants do not go into the river.

Due to construction activity, the bridge is initially scheduled for closure on Thursday, June 13th,  for the 1st phase of construction that will last 3-4 weeks. During this phase the bridge will have limited access to the public only during non construction hours.
During blasting and repainting the Purdon Road Bridge will be closed to all traffic. That will take another 4 to 6 weeks.
