The County of San Luis Obispo Department of Public Works will be performing roadway slope repair on Toro Creek Road approximately 1.9 miles east of Highway 1 north of Morro Bay.

Work will begin Tuesday, August 4, 2020, between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.  Work will continue through mid-September. Please refer to the attached map for specific location.

Road damage was due to a series of storms which occurred January through March 2017.  The work will include reconstructing and revegetating the failed slope embankment and repaving a section of the road.  Work will also include a stream diversion to accommodate the slope repair.

For the safety of the public and the workers, traffic on Toro Creek Road will be subject to detours or one-way controls with flaggers as required for each phase of the work.  Motorists are advised to adjust their travel plans due to delays.

David Crye General Engineering Contractor, Inc., of Morro Bay, has been awarded the contract in the amount of, $150,474, to perform the work.  The project is funded by San Luis Obispo County Road Maintenance funds and is partially reimbursed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
