Highway One conditions for the next week or so …

First, I apologize for the lateness of this, but yesterday nothing worked.

Best Buddies is tomorrow, Sat. Sept 7.

And on FHL:
Construction to slow traffic on Mission Road

Beginning Monday, Sept. 9, construction work will close one lane of Mission Road at times between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. The project, between the Checkpoint Charlie curve, where the 40-mph zone begins, and the Nacimiento-Fergusson Road turnoff, will last several weeks. The contractor will be repairing the roadway and shoulder, repaving and widening the lanes.

Mission Road connects U.S. 101 via Jolon Road to both Nacimiento-Fergusson, the only paved road across the Santa Lucia Mountains from US 101 to Big Sur between Cambria and Carmel, and Del Venturi Road, which leads to several U.S. Forest Service campgrounds and recreation areas.

One Response to “Highway One conditions for the next week or so …”

  1. Thanks, Kate,
    The “heads up’s” are still very useful. I can use them in planning my town-runs over the next couple of weeks. The bike run did have a lot of traffic on the road, with the added load of vacationers, who would have been up in Yosemite, if it weren’t for the fire closures. Driving to town required extra alertness for all kinds of vehicles, including large “pelletons” of bicyclists
    every mile or so. Keep an eye on the tropical monsoon weather moving toward So Cal…it could drift up here, with t-storms, later in the week.
    Our first week of classes, here at Pacific Valley School went very well – a sign of a good school year ahead.
