The City will reopen Cathedral Oaks Road between Winchester Canyon Road and Calle Real on Tuesday, June 6. The bike lane and shoulder will remain closed until the final repairs are made. The road has been closed since January 30, 2017, due to damage incurred during the rain storms we had. During the closure the City has been looking into the integrity of the crib walls (the retaining walls which hold up the road) and brought in specialty engineers and a geotechnical consultant to assess the road. Read more about the closure in the February issue of the Monarch Press.
The City will soon issue a Request for Proposals to design the ultimate repair or replacement of the retaining wall system. This process could take two years. The roadway will be closed during construction. Since the road condition was caused by the January storms, the City is seeking state and federal aid for emergency repairs.
