Because Castle Creek Bridge, built in 1961 and designed to last 75 years, is nearing the end of its useful life, we believe the choice before the community is:
1) Build the Preferred Alternative (PA); or
2) Don't build the Preferred Alternative.
However, if the community does not want to build the preferred alternative AND wants to explore another alternative, it will require opening the Record of Decision (ROD) or creating new ROD. It is estimated, in 2022 dollars, that that process will cost about $8 million and take four to eight years to complete, depending on which of the other alternatives the community wanted to pursue.
