We are aware that a Big Sur bridge (The Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge) on Highway 1 is closed indefinitely.

 

The bridge has suffered irreparable structure damage as a result of the heavy rainfall over recent weeks. Due to extreme safety concerns and the bridge's dynamic instability, no vehicle or pedestrian is permitted within 100 feet of either side of the bridge.

 

A new bridge is required to be built, however current information suggests this may take as long as 12 months to be complete.

 

The closure means travellers can no longer make the complete road-trip along California's scenic Highway 1. Motorists may now only travel south on State Route 1 from Carmel to just south of Palo Colorado in Monterey County and north from Cambria to Ragged Point in San Luis Obispo County.

 

We advise all clients to pay close attention to local advice, plan an alternate route and to check the with Californian Department of Transportation for further updates on road closures on the following website links:
