The Cinnabar Bridge will be demolished this week in Petaluma as part of the SMART rail line construction project. The southernmost road in Point Reyes National Seashore will be closed for repairs, Sonoma County road crews will finishing paving and striping jobs, and state officials remind drivers to give road crews and stopped police cars a wide berth.

Cinnabar Bridge Replacement 

On Thursday, October 3, construction associated with the replacement of the Cinnabar Bridge will begin. Demolition of the track will occur on October 3; demolition of the bridge structure will begin on Friday, October 4; and pile driving for the new structure will begin on Sunday, October 6. Due to seasonal constraints for doing construction work on the Petaluma River and to minimize impacts to freight service, SMART contractor Stacy and Witbeck/Herzog will be utilizing 24/7 hour work shifts to build the new bridge. Stay tuned for more information.

Point Reyes National Seashore

Limantour Road at Point Reyes National Seashore will close today for repairs that could last up to a month. Crews will keep the road closed 8 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays to repair a failed culvert before winter arrives. Once it’s done, the project will restore Limantour to two lanes of traffic and provide access to the national seashore. Traffic has been limited to one lance since a 48-inch culvert failed near Bear Valley Road. For more information, visit nps.gov.

Users of this route, including both vehicles and bicyclists are advised to use caution.

Give road crews a chance

State officials are renewing warnings about distracted driving following four serious crashed involving highway workers and law officers in construction zones.

The Associated Press reports that 15 people, including several Caltrans workers, a California Highway Patrol officer and six community service cleanup crew members, were injured in highway crashes over three days in mid-September.

The incidents have prompted state officials to warn drivers to stay alert and remember they may have to slow down, move over, and even come to a stop on state highways at times because of roadwork.

Caltrans spokesman Mark Dinger tells the Bee that distracted driving, including illegal cellphone use, continues to be considered a key cause of “cone zone” crashes.

Officials say data show road maintenance and construction jobs are among the most dangerous occupations in the country.
