DEMOLITION OF PFEIFFER CANYON BRIDGE SUCCESSFUL THIS WEEKEND WITH REMOVAL OF SPAN TWO/PROJECT CONTINUES THIS WEEK

MONTEREY COUNTY – The demolition of the Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge on State Route 1 continued on Saturday, March 18 with a successful demolition of
span No. 2 (middle section). Span No. 3 (north section) was demolished on Thursday, March 16.

The demolition of Span No. 1 (south section) will begin Monday, March 20, weather permitting and is expected to take several days to complete.
In addition, work to recover debris from the demolished spans will occur over the next several days.

This bridge was closed last month due to mud/rock slides which caused unrepairable damage. A replacement bridge will be built and is expected to take nine to twelve months to complete.

Caltrans will provide updates regarding this demolition process as warranted.

  2. Frank, I think we have to wait and see how fast this thing can go up. It can’t even start until the demolition if complete and clean up has finished. IMHO, September is unrealistic.
