Document Description
Caltrans proposes to replace a failing log crib wall on the west side of SR-1 by constructing a new tieback retaining wall. The project is located approximately 3.2 km (2 miles) south of the intersection of SR-1 and SR-128, and 5.6 km (3.5 miles) north of the community of Elk. This section of SR-1 crosses a landslide complex that is approximately 200 m (656 ft.) wide at the roadway level. The southbound lane is showing signs of failure as a result of movement of the hillside, and the log crib wall supporting the roadway is deteriorating. The new tieback wall would meet geotechnical conditions, safety, operational and design standards. If the crib wall or hillside fails, the roadway would be closed for an extended period of time without any state highway detours available.
