*Update #1*

CALTRANS ANNOUNCES NEXT CONVOY TO PFEIFFER CANYON BRIDGE

MONTEREY COUNTY – Caltrans will continue the process of delivering construction equipment and materials to the site of the demolished Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge on State Route 1 via Nacimiento-Fergusson Road from US Highway 101 on Thursday, May 18.

This single convoy will be escorted by the California Highway Patrol and will include full closures of Nacimiento-Fergusson Road at 8 am. Motorists traveling westbound should do so before the convoy begins. Motorists wishing to travel eastbound towards US Highway 101 after 8 am will be held at State Route 1 until the convoy passes. This is the only convoy scheduled and will take about four hours to complete the round-trip, allowing for both access times at Paul’s Slide to take place as scheduled.

This convoy will include six 10-wheeler trucks full of fine aggregate (sand), which will be used to construct concrete abutments for the new bridge. An update on future convoys will be sent out when information has been confirmed.

The steel girders for the new bridge are currently being fabricated at a plant in Vallejo, CA.

The girders will then be moved to a plant near Stockton for painting before they are shipped to the Pfeiffer Canyon site. This $24 million project is expected to allow public access in mid to late September.

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