The Pacific Street off-ramp from Lighthouse Avenue will be closed from Wednesday, September 6th through Friday, October 6th. The full closure affects the Pacific Street exit from Lighthouse up to the pedestrian overhead bridge.
Pedestrian access to the Lower Presidio Historic Park will be open, but ADA access may be limited at times during the construction.
The work is part of Phase 4 of the citywide Measure P street reconstruction and ADA (Americans with Disabilities) improvements and includes new paving, enhanced street markings, ADA ramps and a crosswalk at Artillery. New sidewalks will be placed at this location and extend northward onto Lighthouse Avenue. The sidewalk work will be constructed at night with Lighthouse Avenue reduced to one lane during construction hours.
Travelers coming into Monterey from this direction are advised to be aware of the construction zone and detour, and allow more time to reach your destinations.
“We understand that closing a major artery between two sections of town is not ideal, but the result will be a new, safer sidewalk and a reconstructed road,” says acting Public Works Director Steve Wittry. “The end product will be worth the temporary inconvenience.”
