Hirschdale Road Bridges at Truckee River & Hinton Overhead

Project Location

The project is located in eastern Nevada County approximately 6 miles east of the Town of Truckee and includes the two bridges located on Hirschdale Road. 

Project Description

Both bridges have been identified as being seismically and structurally substandard. The project scope is expected to retrofit the existing piers and replace the existing superstructure (deck) and abutments. The bridge width will be narrowed to support lower traffic volumes and reflect the mixed vehicle, pedestrian, and bicycle usage.


  • Primarily funded with Federal Highway Bridge Program (HBP) grant funds.

Total Budget

  • Approximately $4.5 million

Current Status

  • Construction scheduled for 2020.


  • An environmental document is tentatively scheduled for public circulation in late 2018.
