Crews will drill 6' diameter holes nearly 50' deep and fill in the remaining sections with rock in an effort to dramatically stabilize this stretch of highway. Drivers will encounter shifted lanes and reduced speeds during this two-season construction project. Project page. 
Work Schedule:  Expect day and night construction with single lane closures beginning late June through fall 2020.
