Skylonda: Work begins on Skyline slope

Crews from the California Department of Transportation are working to repair a steep slope off the shoulder of Highway 35 (Skyline Boulevard) at mile post 13.1 near Skylonda at the intersection of Bear Gulch Road. Work hours will be from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The work, including building a pile wall and installing a metal guardrail, is expected to be completed in July, weather permitting, Caltrans said.

One-way traffic is set to begin on May 19 or 20 and will be in effect 24 hours a day. Digital message signs will be installed to help guide motorists.

Storm damage slippage. Another year and it'll start undercutting the road. The Caltrans link shows a photo.

I hope folks take extra care at the 1-way signal and cyclists don't get trapped in the middle....
