REQUEST: To analyze the potential environmental impacts associated with maintenance activities on the existing Admiralty Drive Bridge to restore the integrity of its original design. Parts of the bridge have deteriorated due to normal wear from vehicular traffic and from tidal flux of the marine ecosystem setting during the last five decades, and the bridge has been deemed structurally deficient. Repair/rehabilitation would require the following maintenance measures: remove and replace the concrete barriers, sidewalks, and bridge deck; clean and paint I-girders and other steel members; remove unsound concrete and patch concrete at the bridge columns, requiring working platforms with fully enclosed protective covers. All existing utilities would be temporarily relocated and/or supported during construction, and replaced upon completion of the project. Access to Admiralty and Gilbert Islands will remain open during construction. A Coastal Development Permit from the California Coastal Commission will be required.
LOCATION: The project site is the existing Admiralty Drive Bridge, spanning approximately 155 linear feet over the Queen Elizabeth Passage, a tidally influenced waterway functioning
as an outlet between the Huntington Harbour residential community and the adjacent Bolsa Chica channel.

STAFF RECOMMENDS: Approval based upon suggested findings and conditions of approval

4. PETITION DOCUMENT: MITIGATED NEGATIVE DECLARATION NO. 15-003 (HUMBOLDT DRIVE BRIDGE PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE PROJECT)
APPLICANT/
PROPERTY OWNER: Jonathan Claudio, P.E., Public Works Department, City of Huntington Beach, 2000 Main Street, Huntington Beach, CA 92648
REQUEST: To analyze the potential environmental impacts associated with maintenance activities on the existing Humboldt Drive Bridge to restore the integrity of its original design. Parts of the bridge have deteriorated due to normal wear from vehicular traffic and from tidal flux of the marine ecosystem setting during the last five decades, and the bridge has been deemed functionally obsolete due to aspects of its existing condition and a narrow roadway width identified by a routine Caltrans Bridge Inspection Report. Repair/rehabilitation will be conducted in two phases to allow the continued use of the bridge for vehicular and pedestrian access, and will require the following maintenance measures: remove and replace the concrete barriers, sidewalks, and bridge deck; sandblast, clean and paint the steel girders and other steel members; and remove unsound concrete and patch concrete at the bridge columns, requiring working platforms with fully enclosed protective covers. The existing bridge will be widened by approximately two feet on each side (from the existing width of 35 feet to a total width of 39 feet) and provide standard sidewalks on both sides. All existing utilities would be temporarily relocated and/or supported during construction, and replaced upon completion of the project. Access to Humboldt Island will remain open during construction. A Coastal Development Permit from the California Coastal Commission will be required.
LOCATION: The project site is the existing Humboldt Drive Bridge, spanning approximately 156 linear feet over the Short Channel, a tidally influenced waterway within the Huntington Harbour residential community.
CITY CONTACT: Hayden Beckman
STAFF RECOMMENDS: Approval based upon suggested findings and conditions of approval
