Last Thursday an excavator headed southbound on Hwy 17 impacted the underside of the Blossom Hill Road bridge that crosses the highway. The impact resulted in damage to the bridge leading Caltrans engineers to recommend closing the eastbound direction of Blossom Hill Road at that location to keep the weight and stresses of vehicle traffic off of the damaged portion of the bridge. Caltrans is continuing to evaluate the damage and to plan for repairs. At this time the town does not have an estimate on the time it will take to conduct the repairs, but is planning for an extended closure of a month or more.
- The westbound direction of Blossom Hill Road remains open.
- Bicycles and pedestrians are free to use the bridge and the closure actually creates extra space.
- The Town has coordinated with Vasona Park for drop-offs. The attached map provides directions for how to do this.
- Please allow extra time for drop-off and for students to walk up to school.
Thank you for your patience.
