California Incline Bridge and Idaho Avenue Pedestrian Overcrossing Now Open in Santa Monica, California
T.Y. Lin International (TYLI), a globally recognized full-service infrastructure consulting firm, announces the completion of two infrastructure projects in Santa Monica, California: the new California Incline Bridge and the Idaho Avenue Pedestrian Overcrossing (POC). A 750-foot-long post-tensioned concrete slab bridge, the California Incline Bridge begins atop the bluff slopes of Pacific Palisades Park and carries vehicular traffic, pedestrians, and bicyclists down to the Pacific Coast Highway at the base of the bluffs near Santa Monica State Beach. The bridge replaces a series of deteriorating, seismically-deficient sidehill viaduct structures built in 1930. The Idaho Avenue POC replaces the former California Incline POC constructed in 1957. An aesthetic, curving structure with signature V-shaped pier, the replacement POC emerges seamlessly from the historic Idaho Trail and spirals down to connect to the new multiuse bicycle/pedestrian path constructed for the California Incline Bridge project.
