The bridge element is a separable element of the larger Folsom Dam Raise Project. The bridge element was completed first so that the Folsom Dam Modification, Join Federal Project, can proceed accordingly. Also, the new bridge redirects traffic off of the dam for security reasons and also facilitates raising the dam. The Folsom Dam 3.5 ft Raise Project itself is still in design stage, as of Feb 2017, which will be constructed in the project under another project heading - "Folsom Dam Raise Project". Total project cost amount below includes State support costs for the bridge construction only.
