FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

* UPDATE #59 **

HIGHWAY 1/ROCKY CREEK VIADUCT PROJECT IS COMPLETED

NOTE: All work requiring lane closures has been completed. Very little work is left on the hillside clearing debris.

The project to construct a permanent viaduct about 15 miles south of Carmel near the Rocky Creek Bridge began on Sept. 4, 2012. Completion was scheduled to occur at the end of October. The project is 100% complete. The temporary signal has been removed.

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

CALTRANS WISHES TO THANK THE BIG SUR COMMUNITY FOR THEIR PATIENCE DURING THIS PROJECT.

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