      • Commuters will see crews paving Rio Road Thursday and preparing to shiftto Stage 2, the final stage of this project, next week. You can see a graphicof what will be done during

Looking ahead, locals will be happy to know that on July 16th, Rio Road will be completely open for traffic, the cement barriers will be removed.

Barriers will also shift on Highway 1 so that drivers will be able to use newlypaved roadway.

Good news about the “No Parking” signs which have been placed near theentrance of Point Lobos.  Drivers appear to be heeding the signs.

CHP is enforcing.
