Kleinfelder provided construction management services for the replacement of the Valley Center Road Bridge. Located within tribal lands of the Rincon Band of Indians, the Valley Center Road Bridge over the San Luis Rey River serves as the primary community access to the adjacent Rincon Casino and Resort. The original 467-foot. bridge had 20-span concrete slabs with pier walls founded on steel piles and experienced a long history of bridge scour. The project required replacement of this functionally obsolete bridge that was nearly 80 years old.
The new Valley Center Road Bridge is a five-span, 486-foot-long cast-in-place post-tensioned box girder superstructure supported by pier walls and founded on driven steel piles. This project was awarded the 2012 Transportation/$5-$15 Million Construction Management Project Achievement Award by the CMAA San Diego Chapter.
