Removal of the landslide/sidewalk obstruction on Tunnel Rd. between Vicente Rd. and Bentley School is a separate project. Caltrans has secured funding for it and is proceeding with the design of the project as well as securing the right of way needed for the construction of a retaining wall. It’s expected to go to construction in Spring 2015.
