[ARCHIVED] Santa Margarita Parkway Bridge Hinge Maintenance Project Update

Bridge Hinge Project Graphic 12142020

Construction activity continues on schedule. The speed limit is 45 mph at all times in the construction zone.

Demolition at the bridge hinge is expected to be completed this week with demolition activities beginning next week at the bridge abutments. Stage 2 is proceeding as planned, and the contractor is tentatively scheduled to complete all work on the bridge deck no later than the end of January. Upon completion of work on the bridge deck, all westbound traffic will be returned onto the north bridge. 

Intermittent traffic control will still be required during median reconstruction. All construction activities are anticipated to be completed by February 2021.

Pedestrian and Bicyclist Detour: Beginning Wednesday, December 2, the sidewalk and bike lane on the north bridge will be closed during stage 2 construction. Pedestrians and bicyclists will be detoured onto the south Santa Margarita Parkway bridge. The detour is expected to be in place for approximately 2 months.

Please remember, the speed limit in the construction zone is 45 mph.

Thank you for your patience as we conduct infrastructure improvements for the community, and please drive safely.
