Crews Knock Down Condemned Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge In Big Sur

BIG SUR (KPIX 5 ) -- Crews have torn down about two thirds of a condemned bridge in Big Sur.

The Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge on Highway 1 has been out of commission for a month.

Saturday a huge section of it was sent falling into the canyon below. Crews knocked down two fractured columns.

They made a lot of progress after setbacks earlier this week. Workers had to make adjustments to a crane, to get a three- on wrecking ball to drop with enough force.

Caltrans hopes to have the entire demolition done by the end of next week.
