Restoration of the original rock slope protection in the channel embankment area will include 142 square yards of rock slope protection fabric placed over the area and 142 cubic yards of ¼ ton rock, 3-feet thick would be placed over the fabric. All existing utilities attached or adjacent to the bridge will be protected in-place.

The project rehabilitation area includes support structures beneath the roadway surface and rockslope protection extending into the Huntington Beach Channel beneath the bridge.
