Replacing the La Gonda Way Bridge
One of Danville’s oldest bridges is nearing the end of its useful life and is slated for replacement.
Town of Danville Engineering staff has begun the design work to replace the La Gonda Way Bridge, located just east of Danville Boulevard. The steel girder structure was built over San Ramon Creek in 1950, but is now too narrow for the current Average Daily Traffic (ADT) use, making it functionally obsolete.
To meet current standards, the bridge will be widened to include 12-ft wide travel lanes, 8-ft paved shoulders and 6-ft wide sidewalks. The $6 million project, scheduled to begin in 2023, will also include pedestrian improvements to the intersection of La Gonda Way and Danville Boulevard.
Funding for the replacement project will come from the Caltrans Highway Bridge Program (HBP), a federal grant program intended to replace or rehabilitate public highway bridges over waterways.
