Chico, Calif. – If you have ever driven along the Pacific Coast Highway; U-S 1 and commonly known as P-C-H, then you know how beautiful it is. You may also be aware of how critical the bridge connecting Big Sur to Monterey is for both motorists and residents.

Heavy rain storms in 2017 damaged the Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge, forcing its closure to several months.

Caltrans crews worked feverishly to get that critical span fixed. It recently reopened for traffic in both directions.

The bridge and the construction efforts to get it up and running are now competing in a national competition sponsored by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials.

It is called The People’s Choice competition. That means members of the public can vote on their favorite roadway and transportation projects.

Caltrans is hoping Californians will support the Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge in the effort.

If it wins Caltrans has said it will give the $10,000 prize money to the California Transportation Foundation, which assists family members of those in the transportation industry and offers scholarships to students.

Voting is open through September 22, 2018 at 11:59 p.m.

Air quality has worsened for most of northern California as a lot of smoke from our area fires as settled over the valleys and foothills. We can expect more hazy, smoky sunshine on Tuesday with light to moderate breezes as autumn begins.
