Cold Spring Canyon Bridge

Proposed Suicide Barrier Project

Information Meeting & Open House

Sara von Schwind

Caltrans Project Manager


Slide2 l.jpg

Solve engineering and related requirements:

  • Provide an effective “restriction of means”.

  • Barrier minimum 6 feet in height.

  • Top of barrier curves inward.

  • Barrier components (such as pickets) are a maximum 6 to 8 inches apart.

  • Barrier covers the entire bridge span without providing accessible areas.

  • Stay within wind load tolerances.

  • Not exceed maximum weight loads.

  • Construct secure connection of new system to existing structure.

Design ConsiderationsIn addition to its primary function, the solution must accomplish the following:

Enhance Safety for:

  • Rescue personnel

  • Law enforcement personnel

  • Maintenance workers

  • Construction workers

  • Vehicle occupants

  • Bicyclists

Complement Aesthetics:

  • Highway 154 is a designated State Scenic Highway.

  • Views to the bridge from off-site vantage points must be considered.

  • Vistas from the bridge deck and the roadway must be considered.

  • The design must maintain view transparency to the greatest extent possible.

  • Reduce the potential for a “walled-in” perception on the bridge deck.

  • Preserve an Historic Resource

  • The Cold Spring Canyon Bridge appears to be eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places (pending concurrence from the State Office of Historic Preservation).

  • Design recognizes or complements the character-defining features.

Design ConsiderationsIn addition to its primary function, the solution must accomplish the following:

Environmental Studies are Underway

The environmental document will be available for comments in the Summer of 2008. We are studying:

Visual Impacts Cultural Resources

Biology Hazardous Waste

Air and Water Quality Noise


Project schedule and cost l.jpg

  • Spring 2008 - Environmental Studies complete

  • Summer 2008 - Draft Environmental Document initial public circulation and public meeting

  • Late Fall 2008 - Department of Transportation Project Approval and Final Environmental Document

  • Fall 2009 - Plans, Specifications and Estimates (Design Phase)

  • Late Fall 2009 - Ready to List (Project out for bid)

  • Summer of 2010 – Construction

    Project Construction Cost: Estimated $605,000

Project Schedule and Cost

What’s Next?

  • Complete the required environmental studies. The environmental process allows Caltrans to identify potential impacts and determine ways to avoid or reduce them.

  • Refine proposed alternatives and create designs.
