SAN LUCAS — Monterey County Resource Management Agency (RMA) has announced the emergency closure of the Lockwood-San Lucas Bridge.

Earlier this week, the bridge was closed for the public’s safety while engineering staff evaluated its structural sufficiency. Upon assessment, RMA is now developing a repair plan to restore the bridge decking and reopen the bridge to traffic.

The county’s bridge maintenance crew will perform the emergency repairs in coordination with Caltrans.

“Due to the lead time to procure material and equipment to implement the repairs, RMA is anticipating the temporary closure of the Lockwood-San Lucas Bridge to last for several weeks,” stated RMA in a news release March 18.

The bridge is anticipated to reopen by the end of April. A detour is in place for motorists.

“We appreciate your patience and understanding in this temporary change in transportation patterns,” RMA said.
