Document Description
The purpose of this project is to restore the roadway to pre-storm damage conditions, stabilize the failing slope to reduce the risk of future damage and loss of a principal arterial route, and to minimize risk of loss of life and property. The project is needed to repair the compromised shoulder and roadway prism and prevent further roadway damage resulting from a 300-foot long slope failure, as evidenced by stress cracking along the west shoulder/fill slope. The condition of the existing shoulder is progressively deteriorating, which may eventually result in loss of the roadway prism. Restoration of the roadway at this location is essential, as US 101 is the primary transportation route for the area, serving the majority of regional and interregional transportation, and its existence is vital to the north coast.
