2011 Verona Bridge Project Site
In fall 2011, the Conservation Partnership completed a 600-feet long streambank stabilization project at Verona Road Bridge between Pleasanton and Sunol. The project was designed to reduce streambank erosion, establish vegetation, and improve riparian habitat. This project utilized several different bio-technical engineering techniques. The Verona Road Bridge is accessible to pedestrians and cyclists, and so the project will provide a great viewing platform for education and outreach. The project is a collaboration of several regional agencies, including the Alameda County Resource Conservation District, Natural Resources Conservation Service, the San Franciscp Public Utilities Commission, Alameda County Public Works Department, Alameda County Flood Control and Water Conservation District, and Zone 7 Water Agency and received funding from a federal appropriation from Congressman McNerney. Four M Contracting Inc.was the contractor for the project.
