Photos from yesterday: 1-3) Mud Creek; 4) Paul’s Slide and 5) First girder fabricated for the Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge at XKT Engineering plant in Vallejo, CA—next step is to send first three girders to Linden, CA for painting and then off to Pfeiffer Canyon to continue with bridge building process.

*SAME INFORMATION AS MONDAY, MAY 8—(A SEPARATE RELEASE ON NACIMIENTO-FERGUSSON CLOSURES WAS ISSUED YESTERDAY, THURSDAY, MAY 11 AND AN UPDATE RELEASE OF THIS LOCATION WILL BE SENT OUT ON MONDAY, MAY 15)*

STATE ROUTE 1 REMAINS FULLY CLOSED IN BOTH DIRECTIONS AT MUD CREEK DUE TO CONTINUED SLIDE ACTIVITY. DELIVERY VEHICLES AND LOCAL RESIDENTS WILL NEED TO USE NACIMIENTO-FERGUSSON EXIT SOUTH OR TO CLEAR THE ACCESS TIMES AT PAUL’S SLIDE.

THE INFORMATION BELOW IS FOR LOCAL RESIDENTS AND DELIVERY VEHICLES ONLY;THE ONLY ACCESS TO THE PUBLIC REMAINS THE SAME AND IS SHOWN IN BRACKETS BELOW.

· [Public access on Highway 1, using Nacimiento-Fergusson, will be to Gorda (PM 10) to the south, and to Limekiln State Park (PM 20) to the north.]

************************************************************************************************

· Mud Creek (PM 8.9) –NO ACCESS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

· Mud Creek has three major issues:
1) a partial lane missing;
2) the slope/roadway is at an angle and
3) significant slide material is still coming down. Vehicles and local residents will need to use Nacimiento-Fergusson to exit south or clear the access times at Paul’s Slide.

Paul’s Slide (PM 21.6)—ACCESS FOR LOCAL RESIDENTS AND DELIVERY VEHICLES ONLY.

Work on the slope continues. The targeted “public access” date of mid-June shows medium probability with recent activity, public opening date could be pushed further out.

· 12:00PM Monday / Wednesday / Friday– A single caravan south and a single caravan north, you must be in line by noon! There may be up to 45 minute delay to clear the road before the opening.

· Delivery vehicles (Restriction is 30 feet maximum length and 50,000 lbs. maximum weight) can now use all access windows 7 days a week.

· Access times for the morning and evening are still the same except for Friday:

5:30AM to 6:00AM and 7:00PM to 7:30PM – Sat.-Thurs.

· Friday’s hours will be shortened to:

5:30AM – 8:00AM and 6:00PM to 7:30PM

· The noon opening will be for PAUL’S SLIDE ONLY, (NOT MUD CREEK); you will need to use Nacimiento-Fergusson Road to exit the coast.

Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge (PM 45.52)

The foundation pile for the abutment and wing walls was completed last week (north end) and the drilling contractor is currently mobilizing the south end to begin the foundation work there. The contractor has begun demolition of the original abutment on the north side and will be focusing on excavation, forming, placing rebar and pouring the new abutment #2 on the north side over the next few weeks.

Progress continues to take place but continued slide activity and lack of passage through Mud Creek could potentially push out public access date. Current public access date: Mid-to-late September.

Another update will be provided by mid-day Tuesday, May 16.
