The bridge carries storm drainage and sewer pipelines across a steep slope, BNSF railroad tracks and West Marine View Drive. Deteriorated underground pipelines on the slope were replaced. The bridge also provides pedestrian access from Grand Avenue Park to the waterfront.

It was necessary to replace deteriorated underground pipelines on landslide-prone slopes. Placing the new pipelines on a utility bridge make them more accessible for inspection and maintenance. There is space on the bridge for a future water main crossing.

The project also includes replacements of outfalls and a lift station force main along the waterfront from the bridge up to 14th Street.
