This bridge sits in one of the most picturesque spots in Big Sur. It was foggy when we went, but it was still awesome.

Another bridge. Not really much to see here to be honest unless u have an attachment to bridges of some sort. Jump in the car and keep on driving.

Yes, no problem, no extra miles. On the other side of the bridge there's a pull in to park up, or turn around. Enjoy the ride.

Highway 1 is completely open now. No matter the direction you drive from you can access the bridge and all of Big Sur.

Yes the bridge remains open. It is the part above San Simeon that is closed. we stayed over there to see the elephant seals, then went back on the inland highway to detour around the closure to get to big Sur.
