MONTEREY COUNTY —Highway 1 at Pitkins Curve (post-mile 21.5) will be fully closed from 12:01 (after midnight) until 6 am on Monday, June 10 for the removal of a temporary trestle or working platform near the rockshed, Caltrans officials announced today.
The full six-hour early morning closure is necessary to remove this platform. Electronic message signs will be posted to alert motorists.
The detour is Hwy. 68, U.S. Hwy. 101 to either Nacimiento-Fergusson Road or Hwy. 46.
The ¼ – mile project limits are from just north of Limekiln Creek Bridge to south of Lucia. The project includes a rockshed, a bridge, and a retaining wall.
“We are excited to provide limited traffic on the new bridge as project completion nears,” said District 5 Director Tim Gubbins. The entire project is scheduled to be done this fall.
