Background and history of the City Creek Bridge on Highway 330
and an update on the upcoming Rail Replacement Project
by Andy Walters Principal Architectural Historian
Caltrans District 8
In the summer of 2016 the Highland Area Historical Society was contact by Andy Walters, Principal Architectural Historian - Caltrans District 8 regarding fulfilling the historic property mitigation requirements for a Caltrans project to replace the rails on the City Creek bridge and East Fork City Creek bridge on SR-330.
As required by the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), Caltrans has consulted with the State Office of Historic Preservation (SHPO) and has determined that the project will have an adverse effect on both bridges, which are eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.
Caltrans has solicited the Highland Area Historical Society’s input in regard to the project.
As part of the effort to mitigate the adverse effects of the project on the bridges, Caltrans is conducting outreach to interested parties to obtain the best public benefit from the mitigation proposals.
To that end MR Walters has:
1. Provided historical information (history, photographs, plans) on SR-330, the City Creek Bridge and East Fork City Creek bridge which is included in the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA).
We have placed a copy of the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) on the Highland Area Historical Society website:
2. MR Walters will provide a presentation on the historical information on SR-330, the City
Creek Bridge and East Fork City Creek bridge at the Thursday, January 26th Highland Area Historical Society’s meeting.
