Construction Update

January 30, 2014


Caltrans alerts stakeholders that night work will continue on the Cabrillo Bridge deck through Saturday, Feb. 1. The work will take place from midnight to 10 a.m. and will be noisy at times.

Additional night work will be scheduled as needed through early March as part of the Cabrillo Bridge Retrofit and Rehabilitation Project (Laurel Street Overcrossing) in Balboa Park.

The bridge deck is temporarily closed to vehicles through April but pedestrians still have access. Depending on the work activity, flaggers may be on hand to direct pedestrians through the construction zone.

Caltrans and the city of San Diego are partners on the project, with the focus to finish construction on the iconic structure ahead of the Balboa Park 2015 Centennial Celebration. The nighttime hours are needed to accommodate the schedules of the many contractors working on the bridge at the same time.

The next construction bulletin will be issued to stakeholders in February or as needed for special updates. For more information, log on to
