Caltrans repair of slumping road on Devil’s Slide is a temporary fix
Coastsiders who use Devil’s Slide have noticed for a couple of days that the road has developed a decided dip in the northbound lane above Shamrock Ranch, just before you get to Linda Mar in Pacifica.
Wednesday, Caltrans set up one-way traffic control so they could make temporary repairs at the site. Caltrans says that motorists can expect one-way traffic closures until April 5 as Caltrans works in the area:
Crews will be drilling two 80 feet deep holes, installing 2.5-inch diameter plastic casing and lowering sensitive measuring instruments into the tubes to determine the depth at which the slide is occurring. The slide plane depth is needed to design a permanent repair that will prevent future problems.
