CA: Geyserville Bank Stabilization Project

Nominee: On Time – Small Project
Geyserville Bank Stabilization Project
Geyserville, CA

The Geyserville Bridge is a vital link to the people of Geyserville in Sonoma County and the local community. Residents experienced the bridge washing out in 2006, and though its replacement was a success, construction caused hardships such as delays, traffic re-routing and increased truck traffic. The California Department of Transportation used innovative technologies to turn back scour by the Russian River along the west bridge abutment, which saved the bridge on State Route 128 from falling into the Russian River. The project stabilized the bank along the river in just 40 days, meeting strict environmental permitting requirements and avoiding significant impacts to a community that depends on the State Route 128 bridge.
