New Geary Road Bridge Installed in Sunol Ohlone Regional Wilderness Park

The bridge, the very same as in the project’s title - Geary Road Bridge Project -- is here! Using a large crane, the contractor carefully lowered 50-foot-long bridge sections down onto the concrete piers that were already secured at both ends of the bridge. Now crews will focus on completing the bridge deck, the roadway approaching the bridge on both ends and installing all the bridge guardrails. The bridge is scheduled to be open to the public at the end of October.

This new concrete and steel bridge will further protect Alameda Creek at this location by eliminating the need for vehicles to drive through Alameda Creek at the low-water crossing. This project is taking place within East Bay Regional Park District’s Sunol Ohlone Regional Wilderness, and the area surrounding the bridge will be restored after construction is complete later this fall.
