Document Description
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) proposes to provide a permanent solution to the failure of the cut slopes of the original State Route 25 Curve Realignment Project (EA/PN: 05-0T640/0500020030). In December 2015, construction was completed on the original project where a tight curve was straightened by cutting back slopes through a hillside and realigning the roadway. Soon after construction was completed, the cut slopes on both sides began to fail, and the newly constructed roadway needed to be closed for the safety of the traveling public. Under an emergency project, a temporary detour was constructed along the historic roadway alignment and is functioning today with temporary stop signs with flashing beacons to allow traffic to continue to use the highway. The temporary detour is an interim solution, and the proposed project will provide a permanent solution.
