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 (PM 45.52) on State Route 1 via Nacimiento-Fergusson Road from US Highway 101 on Thursday, May 25.

This convoy will be escorted by the California Highway Patrol (CHP) and will include intermittent closures of Nacimiento-Fergusson Road on Thursday, May 25 from 8 am until 7 pm. Motorists wishing to travel east/west in the morning must do so before the first convoy begins. Motorists will encounter delays during the movement of these four convoys westbound from 8 am to 10 am and 2 pm to 4 pm and eastbound from 11 am to 1 pm andfrom5 pm to 7 pm. All vehicles must not exceed 30 feet in length and a weight of 15 tons.

The Thursday convoy will include the remaining 50% of the rock and sand necessary to create the concrete to construct the southern abutment for the new bridge. We are having to stagger the convoys as there is not enough work area at the southern abutment to stage all the aggregate required.

The steel girders for the new bridge continue being fabricated at a plant in Vallejo, CA. They will then be moved to a plant near Stockton for painting before they are shipped to Pfeiffer Canyon. This $24 million project is expected to be open to the public in mid to late September.

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

work zones.
