Los Olivos- Alamo Pintado Creek (near State Route 154) Pedestrian/Bicycle/Equestrian Bridge Project Slated for Demolition unless Caltrans hears from you!
This historic 1912 bridge has been used by pedestrians, bicyclists and equestrians and is one of only a few places to cross Alamo Pintado Creek in Los Olivos. If you want the bridge to remain/be replaced, action is needed.

The Alamo Pintado Creek Pedestrian Bridge was constructed in 1912. In 1971, a new bridge structure – along State Route 154 —was built 40 feet upstream of the existing structure. At that time, local citizens contacted the State to leave the 1912 structure so it could be used as a pedestrian/equestrian trail bridge. Concrete footing encasements were built around the pile caps of the existing structure. However, these encasements eventually became exposed and undermined. Caltrans proposes removing the Alamo Pintado Creek Pedestrian Bridge, removing the retaining wall next to the bridge, and placing rock slope protection in the area.
