The proposed project would replace the existing bridge carrying Roberts Branch Road over the West Fork Trinity River. The proposed project would also reconstruct the existing undivided two-lane roadway and add one-foot shoulders. Metal beam guard fence (MBGF) would be installed on each side of the roadway at each end of the bridge. Mow strip would be installed along the length of MBGF. The proposed project would occur within approximately 0.54 acre of existing ROW and 0.19 acre of proposed ROW.
The proposed project area totals approximately 0.73 acre.
The proposed bridge replacement project at West Fork Trinity River would extend for a total of 513 feet north-south along Roberts Branch Road, from 3.88 mile north of the intersection of FM 2190 and Roberts Branch Road to 3.81 mile north of the intersection of FM 2190 and Roberts Branch Road, in Jack County, Texas. The proposed project area comprises approximately 0.73 acre, including approximately 0.54 acre of existing Roberts Branch Road right-of-way (ROW) and approximately 0.19 acre of proposed ROW. The proposed ROW is on the west side of the West Fork Trinity River bridge. The proposed ROW would be an irregular polygon encompassing an area with maximum dimensions of approximately 35 feet (east-west) by 300 feet (north-south).
The existing steel girder and floor beam bridge with a concrete cast-in-place deck and metal guard rails would be replaced with a 110-foot long by 26-foot wide 3-span prestressed concrete girder bridge with a concrete cast-in-place deck that meets current design standards. The proposed Roberts Branch Road facility would be reconstructed for 150 feet beyond each end of the bridge. The proposed facility would be a two-lane undivided rural local roadway with one 11-foot northbound lane, one 11-foot southbound lane, and one-foot shoulders. The proposed lanes would be narrowed to transition into the existing facility at each end. Metal beam guard fence (MBGF) would be installed on each side of the roadway, transitioning into the bridge rail on both ends of the bridge. MBGF would extend 25 feet beyond the south end of the bridge rail on the northbound side, 25 feet beyond the south end of the bridge rail on the southbound side, 28.5 feet beyond the north end of the bridge rail on the northbound side and 28.5 feet beyond the north end of the bridge rail on the southbound side. Mow strip would be installed along the full length of MBGF. The proposed Roberts Branch Road ROW would vary from 50-71 feet, with approximately 40 feet of existing ROW and 25 feet of new ROW at the widest point.
