Program Information:

This bridge is being funded through the federal Highway Bridge Rehabilitation and Replacement (HBRR) program. Some facts about the HBRR program:

  • It is a federal safety program administered by the State to repair deficient locally owned public bridges
  • Two major categories:
    • Replacement - Structurally Deficient or Functionally Obsolete with a Sufficiency Rating (SR) <= 50
    • Rehabilitation - Structurally Deficient or Functionally Obsolete with a SR <= 80

Federal reimbursement rate is 80% - remaining 20% may be Local or State funds

The City is pursuing this funding program for two of its older bridges. They include:

1. Rainbow Bridge - Functionally Obsolete for deck geometry and guardrail.

  • SR = 75.7 - Eligible for rehabilitation only

2. Orangevale Avenue Bridge - Functionally Obsolete for deck geometry, guardrail and bridge railing.

  • SR = 47.9 - Eligible for replacement or rehabilitation
