URGENT – Viaduct update

MONTEREY COUNTY – After further consultation with the contractor, daytime roadwork will occur from dawn until dusk beginning on Monday, Oct. 15 through Saturday, Oct. 20. No overnight closures of Highway 1 at Rocky Creek (Mile Marker 59.5) are currently scheduled for next week, Caltrans officials have announced.

Construction next week will consist of drilling to begin installing the viaduct columns.

Daytime roadwork will generally take place six days a week with one-way signalized traffic control. Traffic will be stopped for 10 minutes at a time. However, full overnight closures will be scheduled five nights a week Sundays through Thursdays. No full closures will occur on Friday/Saturday nights.

The project to construct a permanent viaduct about 15 miles south of Carmel near the Rocky Creek Bridge along Highway 1 began on Sept. 4. Completion is scheduled by Labor Day 2013, weather permitting.

Daily roadwork schedules are subject to change due to weather conditions and other factors.
