Cabrillo Boulevard Bridge Replacement Project Update

The second stage of construction continues as crews prepare for upcoming pile installation and partial removals of the mountain side of the bridge.

To view the current construction layout and activity, please visit and click on the project photo icon. Through traffic is encouraged to use alternative routes including Garden, Yanonali, and State Streets to visit Stearns Wharf or bypass the construction area.

Upcoming Work:
Over the next month, pile installation will occur for the temporary pedestrian bridge located in the beach park and for the mountain side of the new Cabrillo Boulevard Bridge. Large equipment will be in place for pile installation for both bridges. Pile installation will be a combination of “twist and turn” and vibratory piles to reduce local area impacts for businesses and visitors.

The temporary pedestrian bridge will be needed for Stage 3 work when the beachside of the Cabrillo Boulevard Bridge is replaced and areas near the bridge will be closed for construction.

Throughout Stage 2, the mountain side of Cabrillo Boulevard will remain closed near the bridge. One lane in each direction remains open on Cabrillo Boulevard during daytime construction for vehicular use. Helena Avenue is closed to vehicles at Cabrillo Boulevard, but access will remain for pedestrians, bikes, and segways. The majority of the parking lot at 21 Helena Avenue is closed for construction staging.

To accommodate the work area, the left turn lane from westbound Cabrillo Boulevard to Stearns Wharf is closed. Motorists will be able to enter Stearns Wharf from State Street and eastbound Cabrillo Boulevard. Detour signs are in place to highlight access around the closures.

In the park area, sidewalks and pedestrian pathways remain open with temporary pathways as needed to accommodate utility and bridge work.

Fall 2014 - 2016:
The Cabrillo Boulevard Bridge Replacement Project includes a new bridge, enhanced Mission Creek banks, and improved pedestrian areas. Cabrillo Boulevard, surrounding businesses, parks, Stearns Wharf, and the Arts and Crafts Show will remain open throughout construction. Arts and Crafts Show booths near the restrooms have been moved closer to the skate park, so please look for and support your favorite artists throughout construction.
