    Caltrans opened the stretch between the downed bridge and Lucia yesterday. There is single lane alternating access through the Paul's Slide area.

    This leaves only 2 closures:

    1. Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge
    2. Between Mud Creek and Salmon Creek

    The stretch between Mud Creek and Pfeiffer Canyon is only accessible via Nacimiento-Fergusson Road.

    Caltrans is behind schedule. The bridge now looks like it won't be open till sometime in October.

    Caltrans is behind schedule???? Ha ha ha ha! It is ALWAYS behind schedule!

    They're working on CA-67. It was supposed to be done in June. Ha -- the most recent sign says, road delays 7 pm to 5 am, Aug 20 to Sep 20. I look for it to be delayed some more.

    Default Not Always, sometimes CALTrans is ahead of schedule

    Actually, do you remember when the CA-14 overpass collapsed onto the I-15 after the January 17, 1994 Northridge earthquake? They completed the reconstruction under budget and 4 weeks earlier than expected!

    From the LA Times:
    SACRAMENTO — Bringing another dose of relief to quake-weary Southern California commuters, officials said Tuesday that the reconstruction of two Interstate 5 bridges will be completed a month early, enabling the heavily traveled freeway to open to traffic next week.

    And the same thing happened with the reconstruction of the road into Death Valley a few years ago. Ahead of schedule!

    Latest word from Caltrans is the bridge will be open in mid-October and Mud Creek will be open late summer 2018.

    Barring any issues, the new bridge is scheduled to be open by the end of the day on Friday the 13th!
