Initially expected to be finished by mid-November of last year, Caltrans is installing a retaining wall, widening and resurfacing the road, and placing a barrier on the slope side of the road. Currently stoplights are managing traffic on what is now a one lane road.
Caltrans spokesman Gilbert Mohtes-Chan said that the project is taking longer than expected because there has been some settling in the roadway that caused cracks to form in the road. Bad weather and a fire also contributed to delays.
Mohtes-Chan said Caltrans expects to finish the project by the end of January, weather permitting.
