[ARCHIVED] Santa Margarita Parkway Bridge Hinge Maintenance Project Update

Bridge Hinge Project Graphic 01082021

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

Construction on the bridge deck is anticipated to be finished in the next two weeks.  At this time, pedestrians and bicyclists are detoured onto the south Santa Margarita Parkway Bridge as the north bridge remains CLOSED due to ongoing construction. 

Upon completion of bridge deck work, long-term temporary traffic controls will be removed and traffic patterns on the bridge will return to their preconstruction conditions. All westbound traffic will be returned to the north bridge. 

The final phase of the project will continue with median reconstruction and habitat restoration. Daytime traffic impacts can still be expected and will be minimized to the greatest extent possible. 

As a reminder, the speed limit through the construction zone is 45 mph at all times. Motorists are advised to watch for signage indicating changes to traffic patterns. Thank you for your patience as we conduct infrastructure improvements for the community, and please drive safely.
