*Update #6*

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, June 15. Some equipment will begin moving out one piece at a time, throughout the week.

These convoys will be escorted by the California Highway Patrol (CHP) and will include intermittent closures of Nacimiento-Fergusson Road on Thursday, June 15 from 8 am until 7 pm. Motorists wishing to travel east/west in the morning must do so before the first convoy begins. On Thursday, motorists will encounter delays during the movement of these four convoys westbound from 8 am to 10 am and 2 pm to 4 pm and eastbound from 11 am to 1 pm and from 5 pm to 7 pm. All vehicles must not exceed 30 feet in length and a weight of 15 tons.

The Thursday convoy again will include rock, sand, cement and reinforcing steel. Future convoys will include more of the same, in general, materials and equipment to construct the abutment support and overall construction of the new Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge (PM 45.52).

  1. golly, look at those stretch marks above the southern section ( lower left of picture )! sure looks like a whole bunch MORE is poised to come down!

  2. wowza! how in the world will they deal with this mess? one year seems wildly optimistic…

  3. Kate, OT –

    What has happened to all the working weather observation community links?

  4. I change them over after storms stop to the fire links, and once the rains start, I change them back to weather links.Twice a year I change the links so they are relevant to the seasons.


  5. Kate,

    NOAA: “CENTRAL CALIFORNIA COAST & SANTA LUCIAS” gives Pico Blanco and Palo Colorado areas as the top rain gauges for today < .20.

    June wants you to reconsider.

  6. Before Hwy 1 is repaired, I’m guessing that a large portion on the east side will have to be sculpted/ removed by big earth-movers— from the top working down to the new road.

    This will take away the future danger from falling earth/boulders.
    The bottom of the dig-out will have to divert spring water they will unearth.

    The length of time it takes to rebuild will be proportional to the amount of equipment & workers allotted to the project.
