Shane Massoud, CalTrans PIO answer to our potential “all road closed” concern:

Thank you for contacting me with your concerns regarding the closure of SR-243.  This is an emergency safety project that needs to be fixed and corrected before the issue becomes any more significant. The contractor will be out there 24 hours each day till Friday, December 14th.

I understand this is an inconvenience but this is a safety project that needs to be completed to protect the traveling public. During construction, the contractor will have a contingency plan to ensure access in case of an event.

Please feel free to contact me with any future concerns or issues.

Best regards,

Shane Massoud
Public Information Officer
