"It is all an integrated concept as part of the dredging of the creek," engineering section manager Jim McLellan said. "Without improvement to the bridges, it would create a 'pinch point.' By replacing them with structures that have more carrying capacity, it increases the creek's capacity to carry water, avoiding flooding."

The first couple of days of demolition will focus on removing the handrail of the historic bridge, which is being salvaged and reused on the new bridge.
"We have to maintain a component of the existing bridge, and the handrail is the easiest and the most visible," McLellan said.
"We had a much trickier situation with the traffic situation at the Ninth Avenue bridge because of Ballard Elementary," McLellan said.

The new bridge will provide a better, greater water-carrying capacity, said Jim McLellan, engineering section manager.

"Replacing the bridge is an integral component," he said.
Work on the bridge won't start immediately, McLellan said. Before the bridge work, Florida Power and Light will need to relocate power lines. There will also be a directional drill of a water line underneath the creek, all part of the bridge replacement, he said.

Bradenton officials are poised to advertise for bids on the $1.7 million project, which is expected to take 150 days to complete, said Jim McLellan, engineering section manager for Bradentons public works department.

The city plans to remove the existing bridge and install a new, precast concrete arch-type structure, McLellan said Wednesday.
Because the bridge is adjacent to Ballard Elementary, the city hopes to do the majority of work during summer when children are out of school, said McLellan. The idea is to avoid as much as possible any disruption to students, parents and bus drivers, he said.
Three other bridges along the creek are also slated for replacement: those at 12th, 14th and 17th avenues west.
Designs for the other three bridges are all about 60 percent done, McLellan said.
The city has submitted a cooperative funding application. If it is successful, money would be available for a combined project, including both the 12th and 14th avenue west bridges, he said.
Under those circumstances, construction on the two bridges could start in October or November, McLellan said.
If all goes without a hitch, we would have completed the Ninth Avenue (West) bridge by the end of August or early September, and immediately put another out for bid -- construction of the 12th and 14th (avenue west bridges), McLellan said.

A traffic study was completed earlier this month that confirmed the project would not have a negative impact on nearby roadways, said Jim McLellan, the citys engineering section manager.

The study recommended several measures to prevent traffic stacking on either 13th Avenue or First Street and also recommended the eventual installation of a right-turn only lane on eastbound 13th Avenue. But even without the new lane, McLellan said, the project is considered viable in terms of its traffic impact.

The first phase of the project ...

The first phase of the project would begin with dredging from the mouth of Wares Creek at its junction with the Manatee River south to 17th Avenue West, said Jim McLellan, engineering section manager for the city of Bradenton.

The goal of the project would be to restore the natural carrying capacity of Wares Creek, McLellan said Thursday. Over time, the sediment has restricted the capacity.
They will most probably use a drag line pulled along the bottom of the creek, which would bring up the accumulated sediments, McLellan said.
Officials caution that the dredging isnt a cure-all for Wares flooding.
Tropical storms that dump massive amounts of water rapidly, for example, are still likely to challenge the capacity of the banks, experts have said.
Because of that fact, the dredging wont change the flood zone designation for certain homes along the creek, McLellan said.
