Temporary Closure of So. River Rd. for Storm Preparation

Road Closed sign

South River Road from Navajo to 13th will be closed on Tuesday, February 13, 2024 from 8:00am to 3:00pm. Please plan accordingly.

Paso Robles, February 8, 2024 - Paso Robles city staff has scheduled the temporary closure of South River Road from Navajo Avenue north towards Creston Road/13th Street Bridge on Tuesday, February 13, 2024. The closure, spanning from 8:00am to 3:00pm, has been strategically planned to minimize disruptions during peak traffic hours. This temporary closure is necessary for the city streets crew and contractors to undertake crucial preventative maintenance activities in an effort to remove a hillside hazard and eliminate potential risk to travelers along the River Road corridor. 

The City has hired a contractor to assist in the removal/dislodging of a rock outcrop located at the top of the hillside slope.  Contractors will be ascending the hillside to access the rock outcrop.  The goal is to dislodge the rock block using either a prybar or air bags.  The rock will fall to the roadway below where city crews will assist in the clean-up and removal of debris.   The removal of the rock block will greatly increase safety to travelers using the corridor. 

To manage the traffic flow effectively during this period, traffic controls will be actively enforced. While the temporary closure may cause some inconvenience, it is essential to ensure the safety and resilience of the city's infrastructure.

For any inquiries or further information, please reach out to the Public Works department at 805.237.3861.

The cooperation and understanding of the residents and commuters are greatly appreciated as Paso Robles city works diligently to fortify its infrastructure against the challenges posed by the forthcoming adverse weather conditions.
