FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PAVEMENT REHABILITATION PROJECT CONTINUES ON STATE ROUTE 1
FROM BIG SUR TO CARMEL
MONTEREY COUNTY – A Caltrans pavement rehabilitation construction project along State Route 1 from the Torre Canyon Bridge in Big Sur to just south of Carpenter Street in Carmel will continue in the Big Sur area. Overnight paving work, with accompanying trucks, noise, and vibration, will continue from Sunday, October 4, through Friday, October 9.
Overnight paving work this week is currently scheduled to take place from Carmel Valley Road to Carpenter Street. Motorists can expect delays of 10-15 minutes.
Overnight roadwork hours will be Sunday from 9 pm to 6 am, and Monday through Thursday from 7 pm to 6 am. Please note that these are the anticipated dates and areas of roadwork which are subject to change by various conditions.
Daytime shoulder work and guardrail installation will also take place at intermittent locations throughout next week.
Daytime roadwork hours will be Monday through Thursday from 8 am to 3 pm and Friday from 8 am to 1 p.m. Motorists can expect delays of 5-10 minutes.
Starting the week of October 12, daytime work is expected to begin on paving side roads, driveways, and pullouts, so that they conform to a uniform height with the newly paved roadway.
Electronic message signs will be activated to inform the public about this roadwork. This roadwork is necessary for the safety of travelers and to protect adjacent properties. The contractor for this $24 million project is Granite Rock Company of San Jose, CA. It is scheduled to be completed by next summer.
