There is no detour for this closure and traffic control will direct motorists to return along Highway 1 in the direction from which they came. Message and directional signs will alert motorists in advance of the closure area.
These closures are necessary for contracted maintenance crews to perform repairs and inspections on the bridge support for the safety of all travelers.
