Crane Operating Over Recreation Trail at Hoffman Starting July 17, 2017

Posted on July 14th, 2017 by Lighthouse District

Beginning Monday, July 17 and continuing into the autumn of 2018, during construction of the new Monterey Bay Aquarium Center for Ocean Education and Leadership, there will be periodic safety delays on the Recreation Trail at Hoffman Avenue during crane operations over the trail. Hoffman Avenue will remain open to pedestrian and vehicle traffic for the duration of the construction project. Each brief Recreation Trail delay will last about 5 minutes and will take place only on weekdays, 7am-5pm.

PLEASE NOTE: If you see the crane arm moving when it’s not in operation, don’t worry! Like a weathervane, tower cranes are engineered to shift with the wind when they are not operating. The arm is designed to move so the crane won’t tip over even in strong winds.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Aquarium’s Public Affairs Director Barbara Meister, 831-648-4978. Full details and a map are attached.
