What’s been completed so far:
- Four of five washed out slopes have been rebuilt and stabilized.
- Nearly 80 percent of the debris basins have been cleared.
- Fiber mesh has been installed on the slopes to prevent future erosion from heavy rains.
- 1,000 to 1,500 feet of asphalt concrete berms will be reconstructed on the roadside.
- About one hundred feet of the highway will need to be repaved.
- Nearly 2,000 feet of rip rap (rocks) will be installed to prevent water and debris flows from damaging the slopes during heavy rains.
- Re-stripe the highway.
