[Nov 29 - Dec 15]
Intermittent Full Road Closures at Albion River Bridge on State Route 1 in Mendocino County. Beginning Thursday, November 29 and continuing until December 15. 8am to 5pm, weekdays. Motorists should expect 20 minute delays. Full road closures are required due to helicopter flights over the work zone. The helicopter is helping to stage equipment for geotechnical studies for the Albion River Bridge. The helicopter flights are weather dependent so the exact schedule is unknown at this time. The Coastal Development Permit issued by the California Coastal Commission allows helicopter flights for a time period of up to four weeks, however the actual days of helicopter flights will be no more than 6.
