SOLVANG, Calif.— Forest officials today encouraged interested members of the public to comment on the scope of the Los Padres National Forest (LPNF) Ecological Restoration Project, which is being proposed on four of the five LPNF Ranger Districts. The purpose of this project is to restore fire-adapted ecosystems, reduce fuels, and reintroduce fire on the landscape by prescribed burning on approximately 235,495 acres of land administered by the LPNF within Kern, Monterey, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, and Ventura Counties.
This solicitation for public comment helps serve the purpose of “scoping” under the Council of Environmental Quality’s National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process.

On the way to town for Rock Knocker’s birthday. We were going to have lunch at the River Inn, but we couldn’t get there. It was lunch time, we were hungry, but we … and hundreds of others on the road…were trying to find cell service and something to eat. It was a zoo. Car vs. Pole. We ended up at Nepenthe which was lovely. I haven’t been since the pandemic…too peopley for me. Had a great lunch, then tried to get through again, and it was open, even though we had been told 5 hours.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WITH 24/7 SIGNALIZED TRAFFIC CONTROL
The project location is on Highway 1 at PM 44.5 at a location known as Coastlands. It is approximately one mile north of the Henry Miller Library and .8 miles south of the Big Sur Post Office.
Winter storms in the first quarter of 2019 caused a slip out below the southbound lanes of travel after which an emergency project secured the hillside. These repairs below the roadway, along with K-Rail placed on the southbound shoulder, have permitted the road to remain open until a permanent repair could be made.
The current project involves construction of a soldier pile retaining wall, installation of guardrail, and additional enhancements to drainage infrastructure and landscaping, which will permanently restore the site.
Starting on July 26, travelers will encounter 24/7 one-way traffic control as temporary signals will be activated at each end of the project parameters. Travelers can expect delays of up to 10 minutes.
Travelers will encounter reduced speed limits in the area in addition to the 24/7 signalized one-way traffic control beginning Tuesday, July 26.
Travelers can expect delays of up to 10 minutes.
Message and directional signs will alert motorists in advance of the construction area.
Travelers are reminded to be work zone alert and give themselves extra time for their commute along this beauteous corridor.
The contractor for this $1.5 million project is FEC Future Contractors and Engineers Inc. of Irvine, CA. This project is scheduled to conclude in February 2023.
Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when
driving through highway work zones.
