  1. Coming into the area for vacation. Is it possible to drive south to the bridge closing at pfeiffer canyon? Thanks.

    • Hi Mike, At this point Caltrans & CHP are only allowing locals and emergency vehicles past Palo Colorado Canyon which means you can’t drive south to the Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge.

      • Thanks for the info…
