SANTA MONICA—The city of Santa Monica has temporarily closed off a pedestrian bridge to public use. The closure is the result of a two-day operation installing a new handrail on the pedestrian bridge crossing the California Incline. Santa Monica has not only closed the pedestrian bridge, but also The Idaho Trail which leads to the bridge. The project began on Thursday, October 27 resulting in a closure of the two spaces from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. and concludes Friday, October 28 at 4 p.m.

Despite both spaces remaining closed to the public, the city of Santa Monica reminds members from the community that “The PCH overcrossing and the CA Incline combined pedestrian and bike path will remain open to allow uninterrupted beach access.”

This new handrail installation is one of the latest improvements the city has made for residents and visitors of Santa Monica. Earlier this year, Santa Monica official finished the California Incline in time for Labor Day Weekend.
