FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LONG TERM CONSTRUCTION PROJECT TO BEGIN ON HIGHWAY 1
SOUTH OF LIMEKILN STATE PARK
MONTEREY COUNTY – A project to replace a culvert and repair erosion on Highway 1 south of Limekiln State Park will result in long term one-way traffic control beginning Monday August 23.
The construction project on Highway 1 on the Big Sur Coast is located at Post Mile 20.4. This is approximately .36 miles south of Limekiln State Park and 1.4 miles north of Kirk Creek Campground. The project location is popularly known as Lucia Fountain.
Construction operations will commence Monday August 23 at 7 am.
One-way traffic control will be in effect Monday thru Friday from 7 am to 7 pm.
Travelers can expect delays of 10 to 15 minutes.
Message and directional signs will be in place to assist travelers. Please allow extra time for your travel through the area.
Work is scheduled to be completed, weather permitting, by the end of November 2021.
The network of culverts that lace Highway 1 on the Big Sur Coast serve as critical infrastructure to keep water and debris off the roadway during winter weather. Maintaining the integrity of culverts and erosion repair efforts contribute to the resiliency of the roadway during inclement conditions.
This $750,000 project is being performed by Serafix Engineering of Santa Rosa, CA.
Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through highway work zones.
