Weather-ravaged Hwy. 50 repaired 9 months later


All lanes are open on a section of Highway 50 that suffered significant damage last winter.

The roadway near Bridal Veil Falls, about seven miles east of Pollock Pines, was damaged in February. The two westbound lanes had to be closed after the slope failed.

A 600-foot retaining wall has been built to stabilize the slope and the westbound lanes have been reconstructed.

The total cost of the project was just less than $10 million.
