Nacimiento Fergusson Road

The Nacimiento Fergusson Road is located approximately 47 miles south of Monterey, CA. This project includes emergency repair of 13 sites damaged in a high precipitation event in January 2021, which prompted closure of the roadway. Site repairs generally include embankment construction, retaining wall construction, and culvert replacements. In January and March of 2023, two additional high precipitation events caused additional damages at 9 new sites. These new sites were added to the project to provide cost and time efficiencies.

FHWA s construction contract was awarded in June of 2023 and onsite construction commenced in September. The anticipated construction completion date was extended to August of 2024 to accommodate the new damaged sites as well as to provide roadway access to local residents. There is ongoing coordination between FHWA, residents, the Los Padres National Forest, and Monterey County to ensure construction is completed in the safest, quickest, and most effective manner. Once completed, the Nacimiento Fergusson Road is expected to be open to the general public.
