Flatiron Pour Operations Underway at U.S. Highway 50 in Sacramento
We’d like to provide an update to the U.S. Highway 50 Multimodal Corridor Project as Flatiron crews keep making progress enhancing and rehabilitating the freeway at multiple job sites in Sacramento, California.
Please watch this quick on-site video tour by Flatiron Field Engineer, Logan Rivera, who explains key operations and updates related to the major pour operations.
- Frame 9 deck pour at the Camellia City Viaduct
- Stem and soffit pour and lost deck forming at 10th Street
- Lost deck forming and deck rebar work at 9th Street
The new bridge construction will connect the median between the traffic lanes and form additional roadways for the freeway. We’re currently expecting to finish pouring the single-span bridges by the end of March and the larger bridges by August 2022, following which, the crews will start roadway repair work.
Aside from the bridge construction, the crews completed the soil nail walls in December and expect to complete the retaining walls and sound walls by July 2022. In addition, as the structures progress, the operation team has finished the Roadway Excavation, Drainage, Grading, AC Paving, and started the CRCP operation in Segment 3 (from Stockton Boulevard to 65th Street) and Segment 5 (from Hornet Drive to Watt Avenue).
About the Project
Valued at $460 million, the US-50 Design-Build Multimodal Corridor Enhancement Project (also known as the Fix50 Highway Enhancement Project) is receiving local, state and federal funding, including $388.6 million from State of California’s Senate Bill (SB) 1 – Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, and money from the City of Sacramento’s Measure A Transportation Sales Tax Program.
Expected to be completed in early 2025, this comprehensive corridor project will construct High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes and repair 51-lane miles of pavement on US-50 from the US-50/I-5 Interchange (PM L0.2) to east of Watt Avenue (PM R6.1).
The project will allow connectivity and consistency with the planned HOV system in the Sacramento region. Further, it will enhance mobility and provide incentives for ride-sharing during peak period travel, which will enable the communities to use the highway facilities more efficiently.
