The Department of Transportation of El Dorado County is in the process of preparing a Project Study Report (PSR) for the Mt. Murphy Road Bridge. The purpose of the PSR is to identify possible alternatives to repair or replace the existing bridge crossing the South Fork of the American River in the town of Coloma.
Prior to commencement of the study, the Department of Transportation is conducting a public outreach effort to gather input, help identify the needs and concerns of the Community, and answer any questions about the process. This Bridge Project Study Report will reflect these issues and concerns and address potential improvements necessary to the existing facility to meet current and future needs. The pros and cons of several alternatives need to be considered before any decisions can be made.
