Road Re-Opens

Tropical Storm Lidia caused a land slide into the fourlane that goes to Todos Santos way back a year and a half ago. It just reopened last week. Seems like a tardy repair until you here what they had to do.

They pushed the dirt back up the hill and then stabilized that hill slide with 4 berms, each 30 feet high and each with a shelf of about 15 feet. The total height of the slope is now 150 feet with anchors going down about 24 feet. Then they finished it all off with a gabion wall of 125 feet long. A gabion wall is those basket of rocks you often see along a road.
