URGENT! RE BRIDGE

From MoCo:

Kate,
We are posting this right now, please share.

This is an important message to residents that have been isolated due to the closure of Pfieffer Canyon Bridge. If you need your vehicle for travel outside the affected area, you must move cars to the Pineridge Trails parking lot. State parks has opened the gate there. Time is of the essence. There will be a hard closure of the bridge at 5 PM today. Vehicles are being escorted over the bridge until the hard closure.

From the Big Sur Station:

The Big Sur Station (in coordination with California State Parks & the USFS) has opened the parking lot at the Pine Ridge Trailhead for local residents who are walking across the closed bridge.

We are providing passes during normal operation hours (9 a.m. – 4 p.m.).

The parking pass states:

Parking area only. Pine Ridge Trail is still closed. Leave this pass in your dash (if no pass is displayed you will be ticketed). Make sure to keep the gate closed upon entering and exiting. Do not leave valuables in your car. Thank you.

Questions can be referred to bigsurstation@gmail.com

Thank you!!! What a crazy year!
