** UPDATE #24 **HIGHWAY 1/ROCKY CREEK VIADUCT PROJECT

Hello Big Sur!

I received an email today asking about the road closure schedule for tonight and this week and realized that I hadn’t received the update. I received Update #23 on Tuesday March 26 and then apparently there was another update on Wednesday, March 27 which I didn’t receive. Caltrans started their new email system this week and it looks like we have some kinks to work out. I retrieved this off of their website. I’m very sorry for the delay.

Full overnight closures will be scheduled five nights a week Sundays through Thursdays, unless otherwise indicated. No overnight 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, 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.
