Shell Beach guardrail

Thank you, Caltrans. For the first time in many years, I was greeted with a spectacular ocean view while traveling south on the 101 through Shell Beach. Your tree trimming efforts will be enjoyed by many for years to come.

While you’re in the area, would you please give some consideration to the installation of a guardrail for the protection of the many pedestrians, bicyclists and vehicles traveling along Shell Beach Road. There are areas where the only protection is a 10-foot strip of ice plants and a chain-link fence, not much of a safety margin should a vehicle leave the freeway.
