Part of Price Canyon Road to be closed for bridge-widening work

A bridge widening will close Price Canyon Road near Edna from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. through Friday, Oct. 5. The road will be closed from Highway 227 to Corral De Piedra Road.

According to a San Luis Obispo County Public Works news release, Price Canyon Road has been identified as a priority for widening for the past 10 years by the San Luis Obispo Council of Governments.

According to Public Works engineer Pete Newel, "The Bicycle Advisory Committee has listed the project as a top priority over the past 10 to 15 years." Caltrans has identified Price Canyon as a "key alternative route for South County traffic." Full bike lanes will be built using federal grants and matching county funds.
