I would expect that the landslips under the bridge would have already had a severe impact on any flora and fauna down there. And any fauna that could leave that area has no doubt already done so, due to all the activity.

If they do put in something temporary, soon, I will go test it and report back. I haven't done any significant touring since 1992, so this would be a good warm-up for the summer.

Apparently they established a foot trail which they're still improving. But it's an iffy deal, because it's close to (or in) the work zone, and therefore only open for limited hours.

I suggest you give them some more time, and follow the updates on the Big Sur blog.

Im touring pacific coast in may. after talking with caldot sounds like new bridge will not be complete by then. they stated that they are working on a trail to bypass bridge which will be pedestrian only. does anyone have any information on a trail, or recommendations on bypass route?

Follow the Big Sur Blog to stay updated on the foot trail. Be aware, that even if it's finished and pretty decent, there may be limited hours so as not to conflict with construction.

Otherwise you can bypass the area on an inland route, but I believe it knocks about a 30-40 mils stretch of the coast road from Carmel to Pismo Beach.

If there's any workable bypass, I'd shoot for the coast road, because without the bridge and through traffic, you should be able to enjoy a nice quite ride.

So, this foot trail is opened, but it seem to be exceptionally long (2 miles one way) and is currently restricted to residents only.

Is there some wild off-path bypass? E.g. what happens if I take the pine ridge trail, then follow the post creek and then get back on the road through the forest?

It does not seem difficult when looking on Google Earth.

I'd also like to know if there is a way for non-resident cyclists to walk or ride around the construction.
