Update, less than an hour later, Collin Jones sent out this:
“Hey folks, our news release is going out later today. The temporary signal
is up and the updated schedule now calls for overnight closures to begin on
Thursday, Oct. 11 @ 9 pm.
“Heads up everyone:
The permanent viaduct repair of Highway 1 at Rocky Creek 15 miles south of
Carmel is underway, with the overnight closures from 9 pm to 7 am set to
begin on Oct. 7 or 8 and continuing for 3-4 months. Susana Cruz, Jim
Shivers and I in the Public Information Office will be sending out frequent
traffic notices, updating our Big Sur traffic hotline (888-836-0866) and
our crews will be deploying numerous message signs on both ends of Big Sur.
We’ll be sending out more details in a news release by Monday, Oct. 1.
As always, Caltrans greatly appreciates the community’s support and
cooperation. This project is important in maintaining the long-term
stability of the vital Highway 1 corridor from Cambria to Carmel. Working
together, we can make this another successful transportation project along
the Big Sur Coast.
Let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
Thanks, Colin Jones
