San Luis Obispo - The TribuneMarch 29, 2013 

An emergency project to install a net to catch falling rock on Highway 41 near Morro Bay  will continue next week.

One lane of the highway will be closed from Cerro Alto Road to Bear Ridge Road Tuesday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., said Caltrans in a news release.

Motorists will encounter one way traffic control with a pilot car and can expect delays of 15 to 20 minutes. Roadwork is expected to be completed by early April, weather permitting.

Work consists of cleaning up loose rock and constructing an 80-foot-high by 100-foot-long twisted wire mesh. The CHP will be present to help ensure traffic safety and electronic message signs will advise motorists.

The contractor for this $120,000 emergency project is AIS Construction Co. of Carpinteria.
