Despite Monday’s rain, it was all systems go for work to begin on replacing the Fifth Street Bridge that connects Marysville and Yuba City.

At Riverfront Park in Marysville, the mayors of both cities and other officials taking in part in a groundbreaking ceremony for the $70 million project.

At least 20-years in the making, the two-lane bridge that currently spans over the Feather River will be replaced with a four-lane bridge.

Yuba City led the charge in pushing the project forward that was a collaborative effort with Marysville, Sutter and Yuba counties, and a number of agencies including Cal Trans and the federal highway administration.

“Just being able to go from city to city with four lanes is obviously going to provide much better transportation, and then going along with our public safety for emergency situations it will provide a faster, a faster transportation route for everyone,” said Preet Didbal, mayor of Yuba City.

The new bridge will be built to the north of the existing Fifth Street Bridge.

Work is expected to be completed by the spring of 2020.
