Seymour Bridge Ribbon Cutting/Opening Scheduled for Friday, December 16


HALF MOON BAY, CA – The City is pleased to announce that the relocation and replacement of Seymour Bridge, a key connector on the Coastal Trail in Half Moon Bay, is complete, and will be officially dedicated and opened with a ceremonial ribbon-cutting.

Opening of the New Seymour Bridge
Friday, December 16, 2016, 9 am
Park Free at the Poplar Beach Parking Lot – Short Walk to New Bridge

The relocation and replacement of the bridge was required because of the accelerated erosion in the Seymour Ditch in the vicinity of the old bridge. The erosion was so significant that it was beginning to threaten the existing bridge’s support and surrounding soil.

The new pre-fabricated bridge was delivered late last month, and has been installed at a location approximately 135 feet east of the old bridge site, away from the erosion. The Coastal trail has been tied-in to the new bridge, and it’s ready for its official opening.

With remarks by the Mayor and a ceremonial ribbon-cutting, the Seymour Bridge relocation and replacement will be complete, and this inviting portion of the Coastal Trail will once again welcome all who enjoy the beauty and serenity of Half Moon Bay’s world-class coastline.

Located 28 miles south of San Francisco, the City of Half Moon Bay is a community of about 11,500 people, situated on the peninsula between forested hills and some of the most beautiful coastlines that California has to offer. Its historic downtown is home to numerous shops, art galleries, restaurants, bed and breakfasts, and other businesses, and its celebrated beaches and parks are wonders of nature, accessible to pedestrians, bicyclists, and equestrians. With its many activities and events, beautiful natural scenery, old-town charm, and abundance of retail and commercial services, Half Moon Bay is a regional destination.
