We've learned today that the planned repairs and dust reduction on SRR (between the RR tracks and Rte 285) has been expedited and will now take place tomorrow (Wednesday, October 1), instead of two weeks from now, as we originally believed. The reason for the new date is the accelerated delivery of dust reduction chemicals from Canada (7 large containers of 300 gallons each). As planned, the work should take one day to complete, and we've arranged for our volunteers to manage traffic during the day, starting at 9AM (when the roadwork is expected to begin.)
Tonight, the road equipment and chemicals for tomorrow's work are parked along the south side of the road, just east of Calle Junipero. PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND GO SLOW if you need to drive that segment of the road tonight, especially if you are traveling east. It will be dark and we don't want anyone to smash into the parked construction vehicles.
Thanks very much. We're all keeping our fingers crossed that this will resolve our remaining issues with the road.
