Beginning November 1, 2013, the Public Works Department's Engineering Division is suspending the construction of the Punta Gorda Street Bridge Replacement due to utility relocation delays.
The suspension is anticipated to last through the winter season, extending the completion date by approximately two months. Punta Gorda Street will remain closed, and detours and alternate routes for motorists and pedestrians will remain in place.
The Lower Sycamore Creek Channel Widening and Punta Gorda Street Bridge Replacement Project is located on Lower Sycamore Creek from U.S. Highway 101 to about 100 feet upstream from the Punta Gorda Street Bridge. The project includes widening the creek channel and removing and replacing the Punta Gorda Street Bridge.
