The Stanislaus County Department of Public Works, in cooperation with the City of Modesto, the California Department of Transportation, and the Federal Highway Administration will replace the historic 7th Street Bridge to correct structural and hydraulic deficiencies, increase the capacity of the 7th Street corridor, and improve safety for vehicles, bicycles, and pedestrians. Although the bridge is open to traffic, it has been weight restricted to 4 tons gross load since 1979. The new 78-foot-wide bridge will carry two lanes of traffic in each direction and accommodate a raised sidewalk on the east side, Class II Bike Lanes in each direction, and a separated pedestrian walkway on the west side. The right-of-way impacts include takes of 16 parcels including the relocation of 3 businesses and one residential tenant. The project will impact unique properties including a mobile home park, auto dismantling, tire shops, billboards, and State Lands Commission property. Monument’s role in the Project includes working with the project team to define the real property rights required for the project, coordination with both the City and County about rights acquired within their jurisdiction, acquisition and relocation, and appraisal of property including Furniture, Fixture and Equipment appraisals, and Goodwill appraisal.
