Emergency repairs including installation of a rock fall drape were
completed at noon today, April 4, 2006. State Route 330 is now open
with no restrictions.
Approximately $500,000 was spent to make repairs to an upper slope on
the route located about one mile uphill from SR-30. Over the years,
rainfall has caused the "sloughing" of rock and debris onto the
highway. The decision to install a 100-foot high by 192-foot wide
rock fall drape was made by Caltrans geologists. The drape acts as a
catch basin for the debris and is similar to ones located on SR-138
(near Crestline) and SR-18 (The Narrows).
