• Water Co. Bridge Work to Begin

    A project to install a pre-cast bridge with a 36-inch water line across Highway 68 at the Fairgrounds Road Overcrossing will begin next week, starting Monday, January 8. Scheduled closures are as follows:

    Motorists will encounter intermittent overnight lane and shoulder closures near the center median Monday through Thursday from 9 pm to 5 am, with advanced notification as project progresses.

    There will be intermittent closures of the Highway 68 onramp to northbound State Route 1 starting Monday, January 8 from 9 am to 2 pm, Monday through Thursday.

    Periodic full overnight closures will also be required for the installation of this bridge.

    Delays are expected to be minimal. Electronic message signs will be posted to alert motorists of this roadwork. Motorists may detour onto Fremont Street during daytime closures and State Route 218 during the overnight closures.

    Work will be performed by Garney Construction, under a permit from Caltrans. The project is scheduled to be complete at the beginning of March, weather permitting.

    Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through highway work zones.

    For more information on this project and for traffic updates on other Caltrans projects in Monterey County, residents can call the District 5 toll free number at 1-831-372-0862 or visit our website at: http://www.dot.ca.gov/dist05/paffairs/release.htm#mon
