The Parr/Dandini bridge over U.S. 395 is now open to drive across! To construct the new wider 56-foot bridge, crews used 2,000 cubic yards of concrete and 150 tons of reinforcing steel. Intermittent lane and ramp closures will take place through mid-November as crews complete finishing construction such as landscaping and aesthetics. The new bridge will offer sidewalks on both sides, where the previous bridge did not have pedestrian walkways. While the bridge is open to vehicle travel, pedestrian traffic will not be allowed over the bridge through November as finishing construction takes place. The new bridge will also have two new pillar-like monuments and decorative pedestrian bridge railings that will be installed to replicate the prismatic shape of volcanic soils in the area. New lighting will illuminate the bridge sidewalks and monuments.
