As you enter Half Moon Bay on Highway 92, you may notice something odd about the new, improved & widened highway. It has telephone poles embedded in it. Half Moon Bay public works director Paul Nagengast tells us that this was the most efficient way to widen the highway until PG&E gets around to pulling its underground utilities. When the lines are undergrounded, the poles will be pulled out of the ground and the holes filled. When the widening is completed, several additional inches of blacktop will be added to the road.
