The City has closed Cathedral Oaks Road between Winchester Canyon Road and Calle Real over concerns about the integrity of the crib walls — the walls which hold up the road. Cathedral Oaks Road and the bike path from Winchester Canyon Road to Calle Real are closed until further notice. Access to Winchester Circle from Cathedral Oaks is only available to residents of Winchester Commons. For your safety, please observe all posted detours.
The recent storms have caused voids or pockets to appear along the north side of the crib wall and have caused a section of the wall to bulge outward slightly. The City has brought in specialty engineers to assess the soil movement and wall condition. The City is also conducting geotechnical work to determine the options for repair or replacement of the wall.
Again, for the safety of yourself and those around you, please do not access Cathedral Oaks Road between Winchester Canyon and Calle Real until the detours are lifted.
