As part of a bridge maintenance project, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will temporarily close portions of Pacific Coast Highway (SR-1) and the Terminal Island Freeway (SR-103) to repair damaged pavement during the following days and times:


Friday, June 20 to Thursday, June 26, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Northbound SR-1 to Southbound SR-103 on-ramp

Construction crews will install steel rebar inside of the bridge deck and construct falsework.

55-hour closure starting 8 p.m. Friday, June 27 to 5 a.m. Monday, June 30

All lanes of north- and southbound SR-1 will be closed.

A full closure of north- and southbound lanes of SR-1 above SR-103 will be in place to prevent vibrations caused by passing vehicles from negatively affecting the curing (hardening) process of the newly poured concrete. 

This project is expected to finish by July 2014.  D.W. Powell Construction Inc. of Fontana, California was awarded this $600,000 contact that is funded by the State Highway Operation and Protection Program.

Motorists should expect delays.  Closures are subject to change.  Signed detours will be in place.

Caltrans reminds motorists to Slow For The Cone Zone and Move Over. It’s the law.
