USFS Response re South Coast Ridge Rd.

Everyone is out of the office for holiday, but the assistant resources officer. This is what she sent:

Hi Kathleen, 

I want to pass on some information related to the South Coast Ridge Road.  Per the Chalk BAER Report engineering recommendations, the District will be performing post-storm patrol and monitoring on the road after major storms to find and fix minor problems (minor rock fall, downed trees, etc.), and to document larger problems to pass on to the contractor.  As you already know, a contract is in place for any major work that may need to be performed.  In the event of an emergency (eg. the road becomes impassable), you should call 9-1-1 (primary dispatch).  Primary dispatch, in turn, will contact the Forest dispatch center who will follow the appropriate procedure to alert the contractor. 

As I mentioned in the voicemail message I left you earlier today, after today, I am planning be out of the office until next Monday.  If you have any additonal questions prior to then, the office, (831) 385-5434, will be open tomorrow and Friday from 0800 – 1630.  I hope this information is helpful and you will share it with your neighbors.
