Phase 1A: Parr/Dandini Blvd. Bridge Replacement
This phase will replace an aging and structurally deficient Parr/Dandini Boulevard bridge over U.S. 395.
U.S. 395 traffic was temporarily detoured via Parr/Dandini Boulevard freeway ramps the weekend of June 13, 2020 as NDOT removed the aging bridge, including roughly 250,000 pounds of reinforcing steel and 1,200 cubic yards of concrete, and prepared for installation of new bridge foundations.
- Crews will not be working July 3, 4 or 5. Construction will resume on Monday, July 6.
- The Parr/Dandini Boulevard bridge over the freeway will be closed through October 2020 as the new bridge is constructed.
- U.S. 395 ramps to and from Parr and Dandini boulevards will see periodic ramp closures and drivers will see lane shifts and lane closures on U.S. 395 at Parr/Dandini Boulevard through the end of 2020.
The existing 50-foot wide bridge will be replaced with a new 56-foot wide bridge. Parr and Dandini boulevards will also be resurfaced directly to both sides of the bridge. The bridge is 48 years old and in need of replacement. The wider bridge is a critical first step in NDOT’s future phased widening of U.S. 395 in the North Valleys.
