River Road Bridge

Temporary Weight Restriction of River Road Bridge at Huerhuero Creek in Paso Robles

Author: Public Works
Date: 6/12/2020 3:31:37 PM

The County of San Luis Obispo Department of Public Works has TEMPORARILY weight restricted River Road Bridge at Huerhuero Creek, approximately 1.5 miles south of Wellsona Road until further notice.

River Road between Wellsona Road and Paso Robles city limits is recommended for local traffic only. The southerly bridge of the twin bridges at Huerhuero Creek is vehicle weight restricted to a maximum of 20 TONS for multi-axle vehicles. This restriction is in addition to the existing single-lane limitation. Motorists are advised to use Highway 101 or Airport Road as an alternate route. Please see attached map for specific location.

The twin bridges on River Road are among 137 federal highway bridges in San Luis Obispo County for which Caltrans provides inspection and recommendation of repairs. Based on potential structural deficiencies, a Caltrans bridge inspector determined that the southerly bridge should be weight restricted pending a more thorough inspection and recommendation for repairs.

Please feel free to contact Brian Uder at (805) 788-2931 with any questions.
