A little over one year after news of a settlement ending the Beach Drive legal mess born of a muddy mess, the resulting project is just about done. If you haven’t driven the 6000 block lately – the retaining walls, drainage, slope revegetation, and even street trees are in; the photo above is from Thursday – compare it to one of the photos we’ve taken in the past six years after recurring slides from that slope:
Homeowners along the water side of that area had sued, saying both the city and upslope homeowner/builder Peter Saladino were to blame. As part of the settlement, he agreed to fix the slope, and that work’s been under way all summer, following the granting of permits earlier in the year.
Now the big question – how soon will the badly rutted road in that area be repaired? SDOT had said that work would follow the slope project. We checked with the department today; spokesperson Marybeth Turner told WSB, “We tentatively plan to pave this area at the end of the month if weather is favorable … assuming the contractor at that location has finished everything.”
Sorry, comment time is over.
