Wilmington Avenue Bridge Over Compton Creek Project Public Works proposes to demolish and replace the existing
Wilmington Avenue Bridge over Compton Creek Project, located in the northwest portion of the City of Compton where Wilmington Avenue crosses Compton Creek, 500 feet north of the Wilmington Avenue/Compton Boulevard/ intersection. Public Works is the lead agency for the propose
d project under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The Wilmington Avenue Bridge crosses Compton Creek, a con- crete flood control channel for most of itscourse, including where it runs underneath the project site.

The project would replace the existing two-span, steel-girder
Wilmington Avenue Bridge with a new two-span, precast concrete b
ridge. The project includes the reconstruction of the sidewalks adjacent to the project limits. Right-of-way acquisition and temporary use of right-of-way would be required for properties located at 739 West School Street, 245 North Magnolia Court, and 125, 131, 201, 245, 306, and 308 North Wilmington Avenue as they are affected by the raised roadway, sidewalks, and temporary construction easements. Additionally, the project includes the removal of a private tree, relocation of catch basins, driveways, street lighting, and the
reconstruction of sidewalks, and driveways along Wilmington Avenue. Lastly, the project includes the replacement of the bike path and access road along the Compton Creek channel. During construction, temporary staging areas would be established in the 300-foot approach on Wilmington Avenue on on either side of the bridge structure. Temporary K-rails would be installed at each end of the project limits, including a six-foot-high perimeter fence to prevent pedestrians from entering the work area. Access for the properties adjacent to the construction site will be maintained during construction. Pursuant to Section 15072 of the CEQA Guidelines, the project site is not on a list of hazardous materials sites enumerated under Government Code Section 65962.5.

Public Works prepared an Initial Study and Mitigated Negative
Declaration (IS/MND) to assess the environmental impacts of the project pursuant to CEQA. Significant environmental impacts can be addressed through mitigation. The IS/MND is being circulated for a 30-day public review and comment period starting March 17, 2023, and ending April 17, 2023.
