Pacific Coast Section 4 map 46 and detail - 2013
« on: June 24, 2013, 06:34:26 am »
We've received reports that there is a bike path closure in Monterey that will last until July 10.

It has been suggested that if heading southbound, you should ride from Pearl St. onto Jefferson St., to Veteran's Park, to Skyline Dr. to SR 1.

If you have other suggestions for reroute, please post. I will update this discussion if I receive further information.

I have received two other suggested reroutes around this closure.

1) Aguajito Rd.

Basic instructions:

Northbound: Exit SR 1 at #399A/SR 68, before entering SR 68, turn right onto Aguajito Rd. In approximately 4 miles, Aguajito Rd. ends at a signal. Turn left towards downtown on Fremont St. and rejoin route at Abrego St.

Southbound: From Abrego St., turn left onto Fremont St. Before it enters SR 1, turn right toward Fairgrounds onto unsigned Agujito St. In approximately 4 miles, Aguajito St. ends. Turn right, ride over SR 68. Turn left and enter SR 1 SB and rejoin route.

2) Follow the coastline.

Info from Monterey County: Cyclists could take a long, but flat and scenic route along the coastline of the Monterey Peninsula by riding the Monterey Bay Coastal trail along the coastline through Monterey and Pacific Grove to Ocean View Blvd, following Ocean View Blvd along the coastline through Pacific Grove, and using 17 Mile Drive through Pebble Beach to Carmel-by-the-Sea. The segment of 17 Mile Drive between the Lodge at Pebble Beach and the Carmel by-the-Sea city limits is narrow, with a good amount of vehicle traffic, so may or may not be advisable for some cyclists.

Last summer, I can personally vouch for having done a shorter version of the second route:

SB: Continue on Viejo Rd, right on Valenzuela, right on Aguajito, Highway 1 southbound
NB: Right on Aguajito, left on Valenzuela, left on Viejo Rd

I heard from Monterey County and they estimate the work will be completed and bike path reopened by 3pm on Thursday, June 27.
