MONTEREY COUNTY –Daytime roadwork on Highway 1 continues next week from 7 am to 5 pm Wednesday, Dec. 26 through Friday, Dec. 28.

Construction continues with drilling work for the viaduct columns.

Hwy. 1 @ Rocky Creek has one-way signalized traffic control 24/7. Traffic will be stopped for 10 minutes at a time during daytime roadwork. However, full overnight closures will be scheduled five nights a week Sundays through Thursdays until February, unless otherwise indicated. No Hwy. 1 closures will occur on Friday/Saturday nights.

The project to construct a permanent viaduct about 15 miles south of Carmel near the Rocky Creek Bridge began on Sept. 4. Completion is scheduled by Labor Day 2013, weather permitting. Daily roadwork schedules are subject to change due to weather conditions and other factors so stay tuned for regular updates.

The contractor for this $11 million viaduct project is Golden State Bridge of Martinez, CA.

In order to minimize traffic impact as part of the project, there will be advance notification for motorists, residents and businesses via a traffic hotline, electronic message signs and email roadwork updates.

Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through highway work zones.
