Pfeiffer Bridge on Highway 1 will be single span bridge with no pillars because ground isn't strong enough for that

Big Sur >> Nine days after the demolition began, crews brought down the final span of the condemned Pfeiffer Canyon ... Caltrans will continue …
They have the old Bridge down and the new design will be a single span bridge with no pillars for support at all. The long metal span is presently being built. They expect the new bridge to be in place by September or October. I'm not sure how they are going to get these spans there unless it is by ship to the coast because they are so big? Then maybe they will winch the two of them up from the ocean side?
