MONTEREY COUNTY – Caltrans will continue the process of delivering construction equipment and materials to the site of the demolished Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge on State Route 1 via Nacimiento-Fergusson Road from US Highway 101 on Thursday, May 18.

These convoys will be escorted by the California Highway Patrol and will include full closures of Nacimiento-Fergusson Road beginning at 8 am. Motorists wishing to travel westbound should do so before the convoy begins. Motorists wishing to travel eastbound towards US Highway 101 will be held at State Route 1 until the convoy passes.

This convoy will include two concrete boom pumps, two mobile mixers and a Vactor truck. This equipment will be used to construct concrete abutments for the new bridge.

The steel girders for the new bridge are currently being fabricated at a plant in Vallejo, CA. The girders will then be moved to a plant near Stockton for painting before they are shipped to the Pfeiffer Canyon site. 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.
