Projects in Planning
Transportation and Public Works is now Sonoma Public Infrastructure - Website updates coming soon!
Projects planned for the future by Sonoma County Department of Transportation & Public Works.
Chalk Hill Road Bridge Replacement
The existing bridge that carries Chalk Hill Road over Maacama Creek is a one-lane structure built in 1915. It is a County landmark and is eligible for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places. The existing bridge has deteriorated significantly and is vulnerable to earthquakes as well as foundation scour and erosion along the south creekbank. The bridge has been determined to be unstable in an earthquake, and is threatened by erosion. The County seeks to replace the bridge with a new two-lane bridge.
Franz Creek Bridge Replacement
Sonoma County is currently working towards replacing the single-lane bridge over Franz Creek, on Franz Valley School Road. The bridge requires replacement due to scour deficiencies. Age and erosion from the stream are threatening the structural integrity of the existing bridge.
Freestone Flat Road Bridge Replacement (C11004)
The Sonoma County Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW) proposes to replace the existing Freestone Flat Road Bridge, which is a two-span, steel-girder truss bridge over Salmon Creek, in the southwest portion of the County.
Geyserville Drainage Project Development (E20004)
This project will gather information on the existing drainage system for the unincorporated town of Geyserville to identify problems leading to flooding issues. It will identify solutions to develop a list of projects to repair and improve drainage infrastructure in the town and its surrounding area.
King Ridge Road Bridge Replacement over Austin Creek
Sonoma County is currently working towards replacing the single-lane bridge over Austin Creek, on King Ridge Road. The bridge requires replacement due to scour deficiencies and seismic deficiencies.
Monte Rio Bridge Replacement
The County is actively working to engage the community regarding a new bridge that reflects local preferences, meets modern constructions standards, and protects the natural beauty of the region.
Permanent Asti Bridge
A Permanent Asti Bridge will provide an additional, reliable, year-round egress, particularly during disaster emergencies, which are an increasingly frequent threat. The total estimated project cost is $20 million, and the County proposes to fund $16 million. Property owners may be required to fund up to $4 million of project costs, dependent on any grant moneys that may be available,
Rio Nido Culverts Installation (C20012)
The 2019 winter storms in Sonoma County caused significant damage to homes and public infrastructure. The Rio Nido Culverts Installation project includes installation of a new storm drains down Bay Avenue and across Hay Lane in order to convey runoff away from the road surface to an existing concrete lined channel.
River Road Bridge Replacement over Gill Creek
Sonoma County is currently working towards replacing the two-lane bridge over Gill Creek, on River Road, Geyserville. The bridge requires replacement due to scour deficiencies and seismic deficiencies.
