The Working Crew – Alder Clean-up, up close & personal

Rock Knocker got some great shots of the various crews finishing up the clean -up in preparation for opening the road. I am writing an article for the Cambrian on this process for next week, and will post here when submitted.

In the meantime, I selected 25 out of the 350 he brought me, but not sure I will have the patience or time to get all of those up, and will probably have to load some, and come back and load more, so keep coming. I’ll be posting more photos all evening! They all had a BBQ today to celebrate the ending of the almost two months of hard work to get this puppy open. Even the Deputy Director Steve Price showed up!

I am sure I speak for the entire community – north and south – when I thank all you men and women of Cal-Trans, Winsor of Cambria, and AIS of Santa Maria who brought and operated the Spyders, and everyone else who helped to keep this safe while the others worked. Blessings to all.
