FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Surfer’s Beach Construction to Begin (State Route 1) El Granada/Half Moon Bay
San Mateo County- The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) along with the County of San Mateo will begin a construction project on November 23, 2015, to install Rock Slope Protection along an approximately 175-linear foot section of eroding ocean bluff adjacent to Route 1 at Surfer’s Beach in the City of Half Moon Bay in San Mateo County.
The project also includes paving a 400-foot section of an informal pedestrian trail through Caltrans right-of-way. This trail will connect to the existing California Coastal Trail north and south of the project site as well as a staircase to provide permanent public access to the beach.
The Project’s objective is to reduce erosion and prevent the collapse of the Route 1 highway embankment while also enhancing coastal access and recreation. This project would provide an interim solution to reduce erosion.
Construction activities will be performed during the day between the hours of 7:00 AM to 3:30 PM. Some night work may be required.
Construction signs will be posted to advise the public of construction. Minimal lane closures may take place during construction. Route 1 will not be impacted with any detours. The pedestrian trail will be temporarily detoured.
Final construction for this project will be completed by January, 2016.
NOTE: Residents may notice increased noise from grinding/paving equipment and mandatory backup alarms while the contractor is working in the construction zone.
