Question of the day, re Rocky Creek closure

I asked the project manager “Local wants to know if that [walking across closure at night] will be allowed. She has classes 2 nites a week.

He answered “Hi Kate. Unfortunately for safety reasons we can’t allow the general
public to walk through during the night closures. We tried to think of
ways to allow it, but construction activities would be going on much too
close to the path they would be using.

  1. so how are folks to live their lives with this closure, I guess that is the million dollar question, eh?

  2. I had to laugh. It always seems to me that the extravagant show of gratitude for cooperation from residents is on display, and the deepest of considering in multitudinous meetings take place with officials, then they charge ahead and do what works for them. The audacity to think it’s okay to cut off a community for months at a time, to make an island of that rocky coastline, is just stunning. A fall back to the way indians were treated by the local fort’s Director of Indian Affairs with the nettlesome natives. And no home brew or colorful blankets being passed out to quell the savage breast. Or are they.

  3. Friends,

    I would be happy to meet with you and discuss why Caltrans believes the closures are necessary. I’ll be at the Big Sur Multi-Agency Advisory Council meeting at 10:00 AM on October 19, 2012 at the Big Sur Lodge to give an update on the project and take questions. Hope to hear from you soon!

    Thank you,

    Ken Dostalek
    Project Manager of the Rocky Creek Viaduct
