Over two nights in early June, California American Water built the Monterey pipe bridge, which now holds the final segment the Monterey Pipeline – a seven-mile, 36” water main that has been constructed across the Monterey Peninsula over the past 18 months. Ninety-nine percent of the pipeline is located underground, except the bridge segment, which represents the 1 percent above ground. The nighttime construction, which took place June 4th and June 5th, started at 9:00 p.m. and finished around 2:00 a.m. -- necessitating closure of one side of Highway 68. At the end of the two days, the new bridge was complete.
