Town Of Moraga

Canyon Road Bridge Update - September 29, 2017

Brian Coyle, Canyon School District Boardmember, filed a Complaint and Application for a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) and Preliminary Injunction (PI), seeking to prevent the Town from demolishing the Canyon Road Bridge. A hearing on the TRO was held on September 19 with the Town opposing the TRO. The Court denied Mr. Coyle’s request for a TRO and set a September 29 hearing on Mr. Coyle’s request for a PI. The hearing was held and the Court denied Mr. Coyle’s request for a PI. Despite the court proceedings, demolition work on the bridge has continued with the deck, stringers, and abutments removed. Total demolition of the bridge is scheduled to be completed by October 8. Work to prepare the site and install the temporary bridge is scheduled to start following the demolition work. The temporary one-lane bridge opening is still projected to occur in late November.
